    SB Board family member James Ringold (@jringold) has passed away diving on the Spiegel Grove.

    Condolences to all who knew him, to all of us here at SB, to his family and his non-scuba friends.

    I had been doing research on a potential Florida trip and was watching his posting. I am truly sorry and send my most sincere condolences to all that knew and loved him. Praying for healing and comfort.

    May the grace of God be upon his family. Always seems strange when I learn someone I knew, if only a very little and briefly, passes. Like there's a 'hole in the air' where they used to be. I guess it's a way of perceiving something of the loss.

    Agree,,,,it is very difficult and hard on the crew. Not easy for anyone on the boat that day.
    Been there, done that..a few times.
