I have the sad duty to inform fellow forum members of the fact the our good friend Woolwell died on 12th Jan following a long illness which he bore with exemplary courage. He was so helpful on most of the forums and a leading winner in Brumas' Friday evening puzzles. I have been in direct touch with him for some time, and have his widow's permission to record his passing on this forum. A quote from "Mrs Woolwell" "It was one of the first places he visited when logging on to his computer, and I know he enjoyed some real distant friendships with other users. It made him very happy to provide advice, and also to speak to other kindred spirits."

I am sure we all share fond memories of a great participant here and his loss (at only 67) is very sad.

It's never easy hearing news like this. For someone who one sees regularly posting help, it's hard to believe. RIP Woolwell.

To live in the hearts and memories of those we love is not to die.

JamesD07,I do hope you will have a look in on Friday night and carry on the family tradition.

JamesD07, and 'Mrs Woolwell' you will be able to read all of Woolwell's posts if you click on his name and choose 'view Woolwell's Profile' this may be of some comfort to know that his advice and comments will still be here to help others.
