Thank you for the flowers sent on behalf of Pothos. I hope he's smiling down from Elysion.

I do hope they serve pints of real ale in Elysion. If not, we can expect Karl to raise something of an almighty stink. Time to tip another to him myself methinks.

Thank you Pauline and everyone else on Pothos the flowers were beautiful and much appreciated. All went well sermon was thoughtful and also speech from close wargaming friend. He went in with Hallelujah by Jeff Buckley and out with No Regrets Edif Piaf.

That music sounds most appropriate. Certainly better than Rammstein which he had a soft spot for.

Greetings,

It has taken some time to process the loss to our community.
We have lost a member that brought much to our discussion and kept many pushing themselves
into research and reasoning.
Amyntoros, thank you for posting; Alexias, well done.

Regards,
Sikander

Deepest condolences to his family and friends. A most knowledgeable poster who enriched many a discussion on Alexandrian, or any number of other points that caught his fancy. Nothing but admiration for his passion and dedicated approach to whatever topic was at hand.

A true loss for the Pothos community.

Nikas.

Hi,

I don't get chance to look on the boards as often as I would like but nevertheless see them from time to time and was very sad to read about Karl's passing away.

One thing that I was first most impressed by with Karl was his academic knowledge and also his posts were SO WELL WRITTEN. (many of which were totally out of my depth).

My deepest sympathies to his family and friends- he will be missed,

Dean.
