Deepest regret
« on: May 07, 2007, 01:58:39 am »
At 6.10pm my partner in DV, Brian suffered what appears to be a heart attack.
Although Site marshalls and paramedics worked for 30 mins, the doctors pronounced him dead at 7pm.
I feel like my heart had been ripped from me and as i write this post im wiping tears away and trying not to break down.Our staff performed outstandingly and Kath and i want to thank you all from the very depths of our souls.
Im numb and in limbo. he has been a part of my life for so long i feel like a piece of me is misssing.
I will post more info as to the funeral date as we wish you to attend as you are more then welcome.

Dv will going in to hirbernation untill i decide what im going to do...

yours failing holding it together

Jeff & Kath
Because we are swat, and our limits differ to what is actually legal.......

I Cannot Think You're Not Alive Somewhere

I cannot think you're not alive somewhere.
I think of you just as I did before.
No sudden gust of wind has closed the door
Or made your presence vanish in thin air.
I write you this because I know you're there;
That even after death there must be more.
So does faith one's inner sun restore
After bitter darkness few can bear.
My mind and heart have not yet lost a friend
Even though my senses are bereft,
For you remain the witness of my soul.
No mere accident our love can end
So long as I have will and memory left,
And you lie silent on some unknown shoal.

Brian we miss you; you will always be loved.

I’m ......1) Dragon Valleys Health, Safety and Environmental Officer 2) Wife to Jeff 3) Not the person to annoy 4) Christmas game sandwich maker
The above list is not necessarily in order of importance.

The feeling at hearing this I have found hard to put into words, Brian and Jeff always made me feel welcome at DV, from the first day as an addled newbie through to the time as a even more confusable marshall.   

At the national games he looked after us, and even kept my poor wife company whilst I left her behind and played. 

I hope that Jeff, Kath and those close to Brian can find strength in the words of support that many will post and pass on to them over the next few days. 

Regards and best wishes;

Paul Mugleston aka Paulus

I honestly cannot think what to say.....

Brian, you will be greatly missed by all. :(

I have been playing at DV for a little over two years now and am honored to say that I am a Marshal there.  Between them, Brian and Jeff made themselves an irreplaceable part of the DV experience.

Players, and Marshals come and go over the years - very few leaving behind a lasting memory with people but I think that Brian will be with all those who knew him, forever.

I'm numb. God i'm gonna miss you brian, you were the highlight of my day, the burgers were better than some of the games.

My deepest, deepest sympathy goes out to all his family and friends, and I hope when we get going again we do an event for Brian.

 With a heavy heart and tears running down my face, love you Bri, we all do,
rest in peace my friend.

my deepest condolances go out to his family and friends at dv.
brian was a great bloke
he seamed a bit prickley at first but wene you got to know him you realised that you coudn"t be further from the truth and that he was a realy nice giy.
i was talking to him in the late afternoon during one of the games (i"d gone back to change guns and he was makeing fun of me for too meny guns and not enuth hands!) and we started chating about how well the day was going and how there was a great crowd of regulars at dv and i allways had a great day there.
life is fragile , grab it with both hands and don"t let go you don"t know wene it will be snatched away .
rest in peace bri you will be missed.

I'm in shock. I didn't really know him. I only chatted to him a few times when signing in but he seemed like a great guy.
My deepest sympathies to his family and everyone at DV.
