Sad news, Alastair has passed after a battle with cancer.I...I can't say any more than that. He was a friend, and there was thought and time enough that we said our goodbyes before he departed, but...it still hurts. I will miss him deeply.
He will be sorely missed. He lived, loved, gave his best to all he did. I am honoured to call him friend. His family has been very grateful for the support of his online friends and community through this difficult time.
I shall be lowering Caledon flags to half staff this evening in his memory.
Fair winds, dear old friend, and may God hold you in the palm of his hand.
