It seems as though recently there have been a number of lost souls involved in all of the boating industry, but especially in performance/offshore/racing interests.

How hard would it be to have a forum listing for the notices, obituaries (official ones when they are available) and condolence listings?

I think it would show the deceased, their families and friends great respect and an easier way for survivors to track, for it would be so much simpler to research and find them on the OSO site.

Just a thought!

Great Idea! Each post could serve as its own condloences book and be forwared to the families as such. Judging by the responses that are posted here, it could act as an indication to the loved ones how many people the decease touched

It should be monitored to prevent uncivilized remarks from being posted!

Great idea!

It's time to have a section for Obituaries with information about the person, such as Bob Morgan, Jeff Tillman, Joey Gratton, Jim Poplin and so many many others that have left us over the years. If I'm not mistaken, I think that Tim Sharkey or Offshore Drilling had a list of those that have passed with manyof their pictures. It would be a great show of respect.
