Coo-eee Carmella .Click to view attachment Thank you. Wee lady is now housebound so I am Big Chief Carer now and with the marvellous help given by our local Social Services we are managing with a wee bit of a struggle.

Each time I EasyJet over Prestwick on landing, I hope the ATC is as good as you were and I look for you so don't forget to wave! laugh.gif
Awrabest.
Rab.

PS I just remembered - it is nearly 10 years (come June) since the Big Meet in Toronto where I gave Wee Mags the fright of her life! Hugs and kisses to all who were there and that includes the ladies! laugh.gif
ashfield
Rab, my nephew is an ATC there so you can wave to him. I'll tell him to look out for you tongue.gif
carmella
ATC would have looked after your flight so well Rab, I was lucky to be able to take early retirement, but I miss my job and my colleagues an awful lot, even though I keep in touch with some of them online.

Chin up laddie, you'll be a great wee carer, hard as it sometimes is I know.
Rab

I always think it is so sad each year, to see the Birthday of the late Paul Kelly, who left Glasgow to live and work with his family many years ago in Botswana. Had he not been killed in a car accident in 2009, he was and would have been yet another great attribute to these boards.
I think it's sad to see a member's name showing a birthday so many years after their death.

Those of us who got the shock of his death and for a very long time afterwards missed his knowledge and polite comments. There have been so many members lost to us over the years.

So sad life can be so short.

Hi Carmella, another board I am on, it happens as the account is still open or a member mentions it , we have not had any complaints


Bye for now, norrie
carmella
That's right Norrie, it's the same with some of the other boards I'm on. The thing is if the account is never actually closed it will continue. In a way it's nice to keep the memories of a particular person. It struck me that if he hadn't been killed in a car accident he would have been 47 on the 12th.
norrie123
Hi Carmella,we only close an account if we have binned somebody, sometime we have no idea if somebody has died, we look upon it as gone but not forgotten,so many folk join, post for a while and fade away and we have no idea whats happened to them
Bye for now, Norrie
carmella
Thanks Norrie, yes it's same on the other sites, there's no way to tell.

Hi, Still alive and kicking here and running after three wee gran weans, with another due in two months. Life is good. smile.gif

Nice to see you Gallusbisom

Got sad news today on the passing of another long time member. Jean (jakka) passed away at Christmas, here in Ontario. Chookie got the message and shared with us, so as she was unable to get signed on I am posting for her. We had many meets and mini meets in Toronto and as soon as weather permits we will have another one and have a wee toast to Jakka, RIP Jakka
Thomas
I've not been on the site for quite some time (possibly over a year or so) but I often wonder what ever happened to Ian Cameron. He usually posted in the Jokes section of the forum and I always tuned in to read his jokes which left me in stitches for hours.

Anyone know anything of Ian? He was last active many years ago.

Hello toerag and anyone else who remembers me.

Been a long time since I posted. Had trouble getting in for a while as I had forgotten password but suddenly I remembered and here I am still alive and kickin.

I also heard via Chookie about Jean/Jakka's passing and can only remember her as a lovely lady.
We had fun on our Toronto meet ups and she made the best tablet ever. Always had a little gift package for us. We did keep in touch for a while via email but she became ill and so we lost contact.

Rest in Peace Jean mellow.gif



sumac
Oh no! I have been away from GG for ever such a long time and wonder about my virtual friends. It’s so sad to read of the passing of a few I knew on the Boards.
Does anybody know about Java, Stratson, whatsisname, Melody, lindamac?
TeeHeeHee
Hi, Sumac, I've been wondering where they are as well but you can find Linda in fb.
sumac
Thanks, Teeheehee. At least I know Linda’s OK. I do wonder about the others, though.
