Hopefully this is not out of line. Perhaps we could have a thread where those if us who have a friend or relative in need of moral support, prayer, or just a kind word could post. Sometimes a kind word is incredibly helpful. Jim

I don't think it's out of line at all. My heart goes out to Jeff Thoede (Rivetng) and his family on the loss of his wife Cynthia. Having just lost a family member as well, I understand Jeff's need to let everyone know about her passing, and everyone's need to reply with condolences. I don't recall ever meeting Cynthia Thoede, but the Airstreaming community is like one big extended family, and the loss of one affects us all.

But if I was an AirForums moderator (which I'm not) I would make an "Announcements" subforum under the "Our Community" sub-heading, not just for death announcements and condolences, but also for happier events such as births and marriages, so that we might all share the joy as well as the grief.

Jeff, I am stunned and saddened to hear of Cynthia ' s sudden passing. As a fellow teacher of children with special-needs and as a fellow Southeastern Camping Unit member, I want to express our condolences. Our family is so very sorry for your loss. Katie and Rob and children.

Thank you all,

And Jim I also share your pain in the passing of your Mother. The idea of a forum for such announcements is a good one. Over time we find that our Air community plays together, laughs together, and sometimes cries together and this a good thing. It means that what we share amongst our group is a real thing and it is a shower of grace in moments like this to know I can always have this community in my life.

Jeff...we met you and your wife only briefly but with such BRIGHT personalities and such generosity with premium adult beverages it left an impression.
