I'm sure Honourable Members will want to pause a while with me and wish our dear friend 'Pugwash' fair winds. We sailed near and far together. He 'slipped his moorings' early this morning, with his close family there to wave him farewell.
Perhaps the words below will have some resonance....
'Namarie', John. Farewell. Perhaps we'll share an anchorage, and a yarn, again some day.....

Very sorry to hear this. He has been an excellent contributor - his last thread was just a month ago, and it was apparent then how ill he was. Please pass on condolences, I'm sure everyone here will feel the same.

oldbilbo, what a fitting tribute.
Very sorry to hear of Pugwash's passing. Our thoughts are with his family at this sad time.When the love of power becomes the power of love then there will be peace in the world.

Well done oldbilbo, a sad occasion indeed. Condolences to the family."You are young and life is long and there is time to kill today

Very touching and wonderfully apt.

A beautiful and fitting tribute. I am a fan of Tolkein but had not come across that before.
Namarie indeed, the uttermost shore beckons. I hope that his family take great comfort from your post and my thoughts are with them."Most people have some means of filling up the gap between perception & reality, and, after all, in those circumstances there are worse things than (put preferred vice here)".

A fitting tribute to a lovely man. I wish I'd got to know him better - but fate in the form of his gearbox breaking intervened and it was not to be.
Sadly missed. Condolences to his family.Orrabest
