I read this item with some sadness.
It has been with sadness too that I have read some of the ensuing comments. I
am reluctant to enter into a debate the history of which I know little.
However as a parent who lost a 15 year old child very suddenly and unexpectdly
I can not begin to describe the pain it causes every day for the rest of your
life. Of course you "get over" it to some degree but you simply do not expect
to outlive your children.
One of the greatest sources of strength to us were the letters, cards and
messages from friends and acquantances. The original posting reflected the
feelings of many and was posted to give Mr Crisp a little support. I find it
reprehensible that the original sentiment expressed has been debased.
There are times when if you can not say something nice it is better not to say
anything at all.
Gentleman we are engineers and as such have a pride in our proffession, are
articulate and responsible members of society. I trust therefore that in this
sad matter, at least, the group will conduct itself with proffessional decorum.
