Mal has replied in his topic on Nags Platter Repair that his wife passed away yesterday suddenly.
Mal joined Pinside about a year ago and had just recently moved to Grand Junction , Colorado where his wife had took a nursing position. Mal has made about 300 posts to topics raised by members and recently made his first topic mentioned above.
Obviously Mal is devastated and may not post again for a while. I just thought as Mal had contributed to so many peoples topics and always with kind words his loss and our opportunity to connect with Mal at this time may be missed. Possibly we can leave a message in this topic and he will see how many people are thinking of him.
Sorry for your loss my friend please don't stop posting you are part of our community.
PS I have mals personnel email if you know him and want to get in touch. Please pinmail me.
