Still miss you Mark, I know that you and JJ are smiling down on us, you guys might have to let me in the back door at some point.
Two years now, oh my.
For those members who knew him please raise a glass tonight in his honor.

Good call out, Tim. We heard from the "long-haired general" last year, and she was selling the horse stable. I hope everything worked out for her. RIP, Mark.

I haven't reported in to the forums very recently so this is a shock to learn.

I had many a good natter with The Grumpster and I'm very sorry to learn of his passing.

I'm raising a glass to him as I type.

I have the opportunity to meet him too at his place in Scotland. Today it's sold so Laura not run it longer.

Here he is and I have to hide a face that will scare the kids.



RIP my friend.
