View Full Version : A dear friend has left us .....

I'm sorry if I bring this sad, off-topic, post on you and I hope MacGurus won't mind it too much.

But a dear friend back on the Apple Discussion Forums has recently left us.

I thought that, as many who post here also occasionally have frequented the Apple Forums, maybe some of you had "met" him and would have liked to be informed about him.

This is what his son Lance A. posted:
<BLOCKQUOTE class="ip-ubbcode-quote"><font size="-1">quote:</font><HR> Hello, my name is Lance Whittington - I'm not the Lance that you know by this username, though. I'm his 18-year old son. My father passed away last Friday at about 1-1:30 AM. He loved helping out here (in fact, sometimes during car trips, he'd talk about some stuff that went on here - he was very proud to be able to help out here). His death was the result of a heart attack which occurred last Tuesday; it damaged his heart so severely that he could not recover, and Friday morning he code blue-ed, and they couldn't bring him back... This whole thing was a shock to everyone, as there were no signs of this coming.
I just wanted to notify you guys because I'm sure that, of all things, my dad wouldn't want to be thought of as a slacker http://forums.macgurus.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

I wish you all good luck with things here; I'd stick around and post but I really don't think I've got the free time my father did. I am equally enthusiastic about Macs, however, this much I want known. http://forums.macgurus.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

Anyway, yeah...

I for one, have learned a lot from "Sir Lancelot" and I will sure miss him and his fantastic humor.

Sir Lancelot was surely a Mac fan and he knew about the MacGurus site as I know he often read through posts here.

I have to admit that, to my surprise, I am still un-easy about taking about such news and I am sincerely moved by it.
