I'm Back

Recommended Posts

Hey guys.
Some of you may remember me and Amanda my daughter.
We are back. Mandy will still be using my log in until she decides to get her own account.
You may have been wondering why i just stop coming into the forums.
Well here is why.
Last year while i was on the road. My daughter and fiancee was at home during a home invasion. Amanda was hurt pretty bad, and spent a week in the hospital.
My fiancee was not so lucky. She fought off the burglars as best she could trying to protect Amanda and our home. In he process she was shot 5 times. Katie died in route to the hospital.
I was such an emotional wreck from loosing her, that i stopped playing FSX and even stopped going on the computer. and focused my attention on trying to find the people responsible for killing her. Once they were found and convicted. i turned my attention to work and just ran away burying my feelings in work.
Amanda convinced me to return to FSX and spend time on the computer talking to her while she is at school. And she let me know it was time to get back to my life.
So i am back, even though i am still fighting my feelings. No i am not over the loss completely.

 As for the Memorial flight.
 I will start working on a new flight to honor Tom, when i feel better about flying and we get away from so many airshows.
 I will get with the STAFF of AVSIM, to set up a perminate date to hold the flights.

Hi Craig,


I am really sorry to hear what happened.  I'm sure I can't imagine what you and your family went through and are still going through.  My heart goes out to you and yours.

It makes me really very sad to hear of what happened. I can't even begin to imagine how awful that must be to experience. I hope at least that you can find some kind of solace in getting back into your interest in aviation, it may seem a small consolation in comparison to what you have lost, but each little step you make in the virtual skies will hopefully see you finding a way to make your heart soar once more.
