The passing of a Basschat legend (sad news inside)

Only just seen this. As someone who has done minimal buying and selling here I didn't have a lot of direct dealings with Martin but was aware he'd been a moderator for a long time. My condolences to his family and friends both within our community and beyond. RIP MB1

Beautiful words, guys. I did not know Martin (I rarely buy or sell gear 😊) but he sounds like a diamond. It is always sad when we lose one of our own. Condolences to his family and to those amongst you who did know and love him.

I had no dealings at all with Martin, but Ped's eulogy and some of the comments on here have made me realise what I missed out on.  Thank you for that, guys, and my thoughts are with his family and friends, who could surely have expected to be with him for a great deal longer.

 

Very sad.

This is not the first BC who has gone to the great gig in the sky but I can't recall if we, as a forum, have ever sent flowers, etc to the funeral.

 

I'd be happy to contribute - I'm sure if we all contributed £1 we could send a sizeable wreath.

 

Anybody else?

A lovely idea, but worth checking with the family if they’re happy to receive a wreath or flowers (some don’t like floral tributes, especially wreaths).
