Exclamation Shamus - R.I.P - 14th March 1937 / 23rd November 2008

I am sorry to report that at 4am GMT on 23rd November 2008, Shamus passed away in his sleep.

The doctors and nurses at the charity run Telford Hospice did an excellent job in making his last few days as comfortable as possible.

At loosing my father I am devastated, but a part of me is comforted that he is no longer suffering.

If any members in the UK would like to attend the funeral I will post details when I have them.

Shamus, Dad, you will be sorely missed.

Im terribly sorry for yours and your families loss you have my deepest condolences. The world has lost a great modelling talent who was an inspiration to most of us here and many of other people outside of AMR aswell. His modelling will be sorely missed.

Qube, the world is that much poorer for loosing a most excellent, and much respected, modeller. His suffering is over.
My most sincere condolences to you, and to yours at the very sad time.

Qube,
So sorry to hear of Paul's passing, he was an inspiration to so many of us modeling in ON30.
Paul, rest in peace. I am sure that you will be starting a new layout in heaven shortly and finish it before I start mine.

Qube, you and your family have my sincere condolences. But as you said, your dad is no longer suffering and there is comfort in that.

I will post a note about your dad's passing on Railroad-Line.
