    Very sad. My condolences.

    It does seem just a little more sad when you realize you knew the person even a tiny bit or they were a part of our community here. When I've also been on that dive, it gives me a little chill. There, but for the grace of god, go I.

    Very sad. My condolences to his family and friends, the folks at RR, and you all here. I agree he seemed to be one of the nice guys that's just easy to get along with.

    For those who have not read through the A and I thread, it was posted by an SB member that according to James' father his sons cause of death was cardiac arrest.

    Sincere condolences to the family - hopefully they can have some solace in the fact that he passed doing something he loved.

    Very Tragic and sad. My condolences to his wife whom I assume was his dive partner since an earlier Thread reported Scuba Couple headed for The Keys.

    And who posted about this very trip. Very unusual. And so sad.
