Re: David Crake very sad news

I've only just realized, but wanted to say how sorry I am to hear this. Desperately sad news.
Much too young with plenty still that he would have achieved I'm sure (beyond the substantial amounts already accomplished).

My thoughts are also for David and his family.

Re: David Crake very sad news

Sorry, I haven't been around for a while then I log in and see this post, my heart just sank. I remember being stuck with a security issue once and David was kind enough to help out. My condolences to his family, both in the forum and in his home.

Re: David Crake very sad news

What incredibly sad news!!

David and I worked on developing a fantastic workshop service tool for my company (a multinational) and David was instrumental in getting exactly what I wanted out of my head and into a database system.

He flew out to Dubai and stayed with me for a few days, so I had the privilege of meeting him in person with my wife and family. He is everything people have said about him on this thread to date. Moreover, he was an honorable gentleman in all respects.

My wife and I will miss David immensely.... Our condolences to Linda, Katie and the Crake family.

David - I shall raise a toast to you tonight my dear friend, and play a few rounds of snooker, knowing you will be looking over my shoulder always. Rest In Peace Mate....

Re: David Crake very sad news

Gosh... I'm not that much of a regular here and just logged on to check something I know has been explained to me before.

I'm shocked and saddened. As someone already said, David was really one of those guys who would take the time to make sure you understood and he was always full of good advice. I learned a lot from him and his legacy lives on right here. See, even his signature a few posts above is still helpful.

My condolences go to his wife and family.
