    Thanks for this, Bill, and to Paul for the very touching artwork.

    Maybe one of the forums could be named after David...? Just a thought; it would be nice to have a continuing testament to his presence here.

    I think this is a good idea. Perhaps this forum could be entitled something like: "Gone But Not Forgotten...Dedicated to the Memory of David Brown (deeb7)"

    Thank you Bill, that has to be one of the most immediate and emotional drawings I've ever done, a tribute to a great man and dear friend to us all in this small community, and all those who have gone before us...members always in our memories.

    Bill,
    Thanks for the forum designation.
    I think it is a fitting testimony to one who served as a VLJ lynchpin.

    What happened??? Does anyone know?
    He was our walking and talking memory and archivist: almost instanteneous after posing a question, the relevant thread was posted by him, or other stuff from the Net.
    I liked him a lot, from afar, but such are the wonders of life on the internet.

    I was going through some old posts and found this picture of David. I'm sure theres a few more pics of him on the site somewhere.

    Thanks, Chris,

    If you don't mind I'll add this to David's (Bevan's) original post

    Bill, that would be great! :) I'll look around and see if I cant locate some more pictures of Dave. It seems like there was one of him in his McCoys L-2 on here somewhere.

    I still can't believe he's gone...

    He was worried that he "looked like a matador" in that jacket. :lol:

    This has been a shock to everyone on the forum.

    Refering back to Peters' question:
    Has any information been shared on what happened?

    Blimey, twelve months already. One of David's last posts was on my 'Happy Birthday' thread last year. Coupla days later he was gone. Here's to you, David.
