Unhappy OT: A special word of thanks........

My father passed away very suddenly last Friday (2/13), while I was in Miami at the show (he lived in West Palm Beach). It was, and still is a total shock...

I just wanted to thank some of my OSO brethren.......

Craig Barrie, Scott Smith, John Schultz, Craig223, Mrs. Craig223 (Nancy), Sydwayz, C-Spray, etc......Thank you for your kind words at a time when I was REALLY messed up.....

GLH.....your assistance means more than you can ever imagine. Your selfless act (he drove me from Miami to West Palm Beach in the middle of the night) allowed me to be with my mother when the "call" came. Also your cellphone message was very moving.......I will never forget......

Biggus...I did get your message, sorry I didn't return you know why.....

I'm a very private person when it comes to matters such as this, but I just wanted to point out that this site goes far beyond our love of boats........we are a family, and as I tear up writing this, I will finish by saying that you guys (and girls) are the BEST..........

P.S. - was good to finally meet you.......

RT, when I did not hear back from you, I was pretty sure the worst had happened. I am so sorry for your loss. I wish you and your family all the strength you need to get through this tough time. Please let us know if there is anything any of us can do to help, as you continually do the same for us.
