Thread: G’day Clipper

  1. #1

    Default G’day Clipper

    I’ve started this thread so that we can send Dave our thoughts, prayers and best wishes to him without burdening him with the need to respond to many individual posts and emails.

    Capital idea, Wayne.

    Clipper, I hope your recovery goes well.

    Best wishes for a speedy and full recovery.

    Good wishes and positive vibes to you Dave, hope you're feeling better and getting stronger every day. Looking forward to you landing back at the 'drome when you're ready with the elves on your heels and stories of your creations.

    Hi Dave
    Allow me to add my wishes for your speedy and complete recovery.
    We are all thinking of you, and the 'Drome just has not been the same without you and the Elves.
    Having said that, take your time and pop back and see us when you are good and ready - we'll be here for you.

    David, so sorry to hear all the news about your situation of the moment. Sincere and heart felt condolences for your loss and a wish for a speed recovery from your illness. You are missed - here's a little prayer for you

    Take all the time you need, we are wishing you the best in such a difficult time.
    You and the elves are missed along with the stellar contributions but we look forward to seeing more to come.

    Hey Dave, we're all pulling for you. Do what you have to do to recover and always remember we are here for you, in public and in private. Don't hesitate to lean on us for anything. Come back when you are ready.

    I'm thinking, and praying, about you often. We will be here for you, when you can make it back.

    Pretty much a 'ditto to all of the above' sentiment from me Dave.
    You've been a pleasure in our few interactions... Plus, anyone who has offspring in my fair country can't be all that bad - can they?

    We’re missing you, Clipper. Missing the Elves. Missing zeppelins... and kitchen table dam busters... and all the outrageous, over the top things you think up.

    Wishing you the best!

    I cannot imagine how you feel at this point in time Dave but my thoughts are with you and your loved ones.
    Although we have never met in person your presence on the Forum has been an inspiration to me in my feeble attempts at scratch modeling. The joy your models have brought to us is imeasurable.
    I for one hope that one day when you feel able you will drop onto the site again. You are greatly missed.

    Dave, you already know that I echo all the positive thoughts, prayers, and well wishes of all your friends on this site. The Aerodrome hasn't been quite the same without you. Miss you on the Aerodrome site, and I think of you every time I'm flying in the Pacific Theater. Looking forward to the day that the king, King Clipper returns.
