    Sad news about neloon

    Hello everyone, this is Alan's daughter Sophia. I'm not familiar with the site so apologies if there's a better place to say this, but I just wanted to let you all know that my dad passed away peacefully last night. He always so spoke fondly of the community here, so it's important to me that you know.

    I am so sorry for your loss. I know how hard it can be to lose a parent.

    So very sorry, Sophia. He was a wonderful contributor here, and though we never met, I considered him a friend. Every prayer for you and the family, and I am sure that he is at peace.

    Hello Sophia, I am so sorry to read of your sad news about your father. Whilst he and I did not always agree on some details, he was always a huge supporter of traditional Highland Kilt attire. I will miss his knowledgeable contributions to this website.

    Condolences on your loss. I looked forward to seeing his answers to questions raised about all things kilt and Scotland related. His contributions will be missed.
