    Deepest condolences. We lost my brother Robin to a climbing fall when he was but a couple years older than Simon. The impact on Mom and Dad was very very hard. As with my brother, Simon lived a singularly worthy life. This is scant comfort in the moment but will become more meaningful with time. May Simon's compassion continue to flow through you.

    My deepest sympathy to your family.
    There is nothing quite as permanent as a good temporary repair.

    So sorry at your loss.
    It really is quite difficult to build an ugly wooden boat.

    I can't imagine what you must be feeling. Remember to take care of yourself, and the others, who loved him.

    Thank you all for your condolences.

    The last time I was at the WoodenBoat Show in Mystic I took Simon and my father. That was in 2007 when Simon was 9. The next day the three of us also went sailing.

    Whenever I would scold Simon for spending (what I considered) too much time playing video games, he would always retort, "Well at least I'm not spending as much time as you are on the WoodenBoat Forum!"

    Very sorry for your loss, Brian - far too young.

    My take is that if you poke someone with a sharp stick they'll get annoyed, if you smile and shake their hand they will be your friends.

    I'm sorry that I just saw this. I am even sorrier for your loss and all that the last few weeks must have held.

    I'd missed this until now, also. So sorry... there are no words for a tragedy such as this.
