It is with much sorrow that we must say goodbye to a good friend and modeler of wooden ships. I have learned as of yesterday the passing (death) of Geoff Wilson. Others including myself had noticed Geoff's absence on the forums. None of us realized the fullest extent of what people are facing in their personal and private lives until things like this happens.
We should always be mindful of when we miss people as we do not know the things they might be struggling with. I have always and still refer to Ships of Scale as more of about people.
We should always be a big brother to those that have been done wrong by other persons and personalities. It was Geoff that I met and grew to become more and more familiar with him as I talked to him regularly on the phone. I am happy that Geoff was able to find a "home" on SOS as I felt compelled to made him Moderator and Administrator. This was my way of making good into his life after his misfortunes with other model ship personalities.
If you are reading this as a guest, or from another forum, it would be good for you to know that SOS is a "home" for all those that enjoy the hobby - no matter what you build. It should be a place that people feel safe and secure, and like Geoff was able to finish out his life in peace on this forum.
I pray that Geoff is in Gods hands right now and that our Lord has the biggest and best workbench and a huge stack of models to work on and to continue to build and be in peace.
To our brother and friend, Geoff Wilson !
