Just to let everybody know.


My beloved Father died on Monday morning.
He gave me support in my astronomical activity's. In fact it was he, who was instrumental in perking my interest in this fascinating subject and hobbie.


I miss him terribly  :'(

Thank you peeps,

I try to keep looking up Mark. Trouble is. It is always cloudy.
I must ask Dad to do something about that  :D

So sorry for your loss, Paul. Do you have any children/young relations who you could also inspire? - passing on your father's legacy would be a good way of remembering him.

Hi Peter
I have young nephews. But sadly they show know interest at all. Don't have children. I am sadly, single.

Really sorry to hear this Paul, I lost my mum just over a year ago.  It's a very sad time.  I lost my dad 40 years ago and still get tearful when I think about it, far too young to die.
