    Rest in Peace, Don (Shamus) Lambert. A drink for you is at the table tonight.

    Me as well, and we talked over the phone at times. Last time I talked with him was just a few weeks ago. I would have never seen this one coming. I have lost a very good friend.

    Rest in peace Don.

    I called him Walter after his moniker from The Big Lebowski. Incredibly funny guy. I knew things were decidedly not kosher in his world. I didn't know, though, how to deal with it very well. He'll be deeply missed. More, maybe, than he might imagine.

    Oh well. We're all just passin' time on Planet Earth. Some maybe a bit better than others. Still, just a way station.

    RIP Don

    Two highly respected Wabbers in short order, this is incredibly sad

    Don was a great guy. When he found out I was coming to the US in 2011 he offered to drive a fair distance just to meet up with me. Sadly I didn't get close enough to him to arrange it, but that told me something about the sort of guy he was. Another blow to WAB. My thoughts are with his family. Sleep well Shamus.

    This has been tough for us as WABbits, let alone their grieving families.

    This is going to sound weird, but I think people who are WAB regulars tend to be older than 95% of the other forums out there. Rather than threads like "1 V 1 Flanker v F-22 OMG!!" or "Bush Sux Dix LOLZ", we have thoughtful threads, shall we say mature threads, without all the text message shorthand and teeny-bopper crap so prevalent elsewhere.

    Given that, this is bound to happen. We are all under a sentence of death here on spaceship earth. RIP.

    When I first read I didn't make the leap to the name.

    DAMN!

    Seamus was....IS....an awesome WABber.

    You will be missed, Walter. Now you are free to bowl on Shabbos.

    Fuck it....let's bowl!

    I'm glad you did even though it was a blow and so unbelievable at the time. I'm going to call you in a few and see if you found out anything about the autopsy report, as I really don't want to discuss it here.
