What a sad news and my condolence to your family, Carol.

RIP, clacko! Thank you for sharing your invaluable time and tips with fellow FTers, old and new, throughout the years.

Your father joins too many other FTers who've left us too soon. Condolences to you and your family.

Despite his self-proclaimed grouchiness, he was always a gentleman and always worth reading. Sail on Don!

I don't recall if I ever interacted on here with your father but I saw this thread come up and wish to express my sincere condolences to you and your family. I am hoping you find peace and strength in your hearts, especially now during the holiday season.

Nothing can be said to make this any easier for you. But we're all very sorry for your loss. I read many of his posts and took his advise often. He will be missed.

I am so sorry.....A lot of us who hang around the street corners here for any length of time perk up our ears when we see contributions by some people,,,and Clacko was certainly one of them. He will be missed.
