It'll be 8 years tomorrow. Eight. And there's still a Simon-shaped hole here that will never be filled.

Luv ya mate.

8 years, wow, where did that time go? Great shame, only spoke to Si a few times on here but his contributions to threads were always good.

Aww yes, I still have the group photo here on my desk. The best of times.

Remember when he was in the office playing Doodle and the rest of us were out in the workshop? There was this cry of anguish from the office and we went in to see what was up, he looked at us & wailed "IT'S GOT SO MANY STRINGS!" :lol:

I made a friend, took it for granted at the time, man do I regret it. 

Very much missed.

Where does the time go? Spoke to him at one of the early national gatherings in Northampton years back and he later gave useful advice on web site design when I was knocking one up for a band i was in at the time. Missed.

10. Whoosh. Jesus, I remember that phone call like it was yesterday. I was crossing one of the roads at work, my phone rang and when I heard Stu's first words I stopped in my tracks. I had to sit down on the kerb. The only thing I could think of to say was, "no... no, mate, are we talking about the same Simon?" :(

Never met him in person but his presence on here was undeniable. Hope you're doing OK @Rich :)

Some people don't take long to make an impact. Met Si in a Welsh service station car park, for a brief handshake and a handover. And then, just like that he was gone. 

Still think of him, how generous he was with that most precious resource, his time. 

Best tribute any of us can give him is to offer ourselves up to help others in the same selfless spirit.
