Warm winds, calm seas, a loving companion, a quick and painless death.

Re: In memory of Imagin2frolic

In heaven does the wind always blow from 80 deg thru 150 deg?

I hope its all its cracked up to be and he's enjoying the sailing there.

Gotta do this cruising thing now because we never know whats around the corner.

Re: In memory of Imagin2frolic

John was one of our more brighter lights here on CF and somehow he still is.

Only now manning one of those inspirational lighthouses, we sailors search for near the end of a long lonely night watch.

Re: In memory of Imagin2frolic

It's been a long time since I was last here. I had heard John was sick, but didn't know he lost the fight. God's getting a great guy and we're all jealous over His gain, our loss.

Rest In Peace, John. "May the angels sing ye to rest and their wings shelter ye from storm."

Nice that you remembered.
I found his posts generally positive and upbeat in spite of his battle.
A very thoughtful and sincere guy.
Sail on John...

Re: In memory of Imagin2frolic

Re: In memory of Imagin2frolic

I remember it being there and Mel was trying to sell it. I think it sold but there has been no new news in a while. Wasn't his CF name the name of the boat? It's no longer in the CG database if it is. Just wondering.
