Sadly, I have to inform you that Ian M M Stewart (Dad) passed away peacefully yesterday after a short illness. He was surrounded by his family and will be missed greatly.
He made many friends here, and although he didn't post much recently he greatly enjoyed the camaraderie and shared love of a sport that he adored.
I'll post more in time, when things are a little less raw, but I hope he's somewhere up above with Mum, who he missed terribly over the past seven years.
If there are sheep sales in heaven, and for some reason he is forced to attend, I'd like to think he's currently somewhere on the old Oban road, flat out in a Ferrari Daytona, scaring the hell out of a fellow farmer. The sheep sale itself will of course matter little.
Or perhaps he's picking out a Grand Prix car more suited to his talents than the one he drove, or knowing him squeezing into the latest Mercedes to find out what all the fuss is about.
He was everything a son would want in a Father, loving, caring, indulgent, conspiratorial, stern and forgiving. God rest his soul.
