Airstream Clipper Navigator Lost

I have not been able to contribute to the Air Forums for the past couple months now as I have been trying to spend every second, 24/7, with my navigator.
On Friday 13th past I lost my loving, dependable, Clipper Navigator to the dreadful disease called CANCER. ‎This CANCER took her life in 56 days after being diagnosed on "Good Friday".
I am still in, what probably is, a state of shock.
My goal is to get some overdue paperwork done in the next week or so, and I hope to get the CLIPPER back on the road ASAP, as that is what she would have wanted.
Heather and I enjoyed the thrill of travelling this great continent together, over the years in the Airstream Clipper, and we had high hopes of doing it for many more years, but the Good Lord needed her to do other work????
‎ I will not have time to monitor this thread much for a few weeks, as I will have to get caught up on home work, but will update as I am able to get the Clipper on the blacktop again.
Dave
Dave has sent you this from Heather's Z30 BlackBerry 10. Heather has passed to a better place 06/13/2014. May she be always remembered!

Dave

My thoughts and prayers are with you in this difficult time.

I know when I first came to the Forums, your's was one of the first names that I recognized on a consistent basis and your posts were always informative and entertaining.

I can't even begin to imagine the sense of loss that you are feeling right now.

Please know that this is an amazingly supportive place, this online family, just ask Maggie, so hopefully as you have the opportunity, you will stop in from time to time to see how much people really care.

Dana

So very sorry for the loss of your beloved navigator (a title I suspect extended well beyond the Clipper).

I hope warm memories are a great comfort to you now and always.

Thanks everyone for your kind thoughts. Yes Heather was my life NAVIGATOR that guided us thru some tough patches and we came out with more appreciation and love as each decade passed. She was also the anchor that pulled the extended family together when the structure was fragile.

The picture posted was this past October at 'Woman Island PullOut' northwest of Blind River, Ontario. Heather is wearing her Airstream Pullover that she bought at Jackson Centre back in 2009.

I have a busy day as am picking up granddaughter from her last school day and taking her to lunch at A&W.

Thanks all

Dave

So Sorry.

Hi, Dave; So sorry for the loss of your Navigator. At first I thought that maybe someone stole your Lincoln Navigator, but this was much worse. I enjoy reading all of your posts about Motorhomes even though I don't have one.
