Yes four years sounds a long time but it only seems a few weeks ago we talked on the phone about jobs. My biggest regret was that I was due to make the funeral but had to take my father to hospital as an emergency, like you I will find a quiet place to send my regards to Dave

Four years. It does seem like yesterday, doesn't it? :( I hope Mrs. DaveB and his daughter Helen are safe and well.

It certainly doesn't seem like four years.

We lost a true friend and gentleman.

Every time a particularly interesting or humorous thread come up here, I wonder what Dave's reaction would be, and how much he would enjoy responding. After four years, his absence still weighs on this forum - what a loss.

It is quite frightening to realise how much time actually flies, does not seem like 4 years have now passed since he left us along with others that have been so close to us.

Rest in Peace.

He's still missed. Every time I start the Sim, or when a new plane is available, he's on my mind.
