VERY SAD NEW

Post by fern » Thu Apr 09, 2015 2:03 am

I have just been told by his wife, Linda, that our pal here for so many years, George Speigh, has passed away.
George added, then, his passing, to several friends of all of us that have died in the last two or three years.
Linda has this mail address for anyone here that would like to send her a word or two:

linpsp8@yahoo.com

I still do not have more details, but as soon as I get them I will let you know.

That is some consolation at least.
Thanks Fern.

George, Leo, Don and many others that I have read... what a losing streak. My condolences to all their families. At least not all are bad news for CCC members: I remember that Richard Vida shared a while ago with us that he was father for the very first time and there are surely other good news that are not shared here but still exist. :)

Of course R.I.P. to George and company.

Regards from Spain.

Ajedrecista.
