Just got home from work to see this news.  Thanks to Joe and everybody for your kind words! 

It is very humbling, especially looking at the names of past Members of the Year.

I am very happy to see David get a well deserved title, it was so close the entire time.  I also agree with what has been said about all nominees.  While it is nice to win  Wink  I think that being first nominated three years ago was in some ways the biggest honour and surprise for me. 

This forum, and the conversations we have here, mean a lot to me.  Like many of you, I have no family really interested in my hobby and I rarely if ever meet another collector in person these days.  The forum community, and "papa Joe", therefore serve as another kind of family for me.  This forum has educated me hugely.  Challenges me.  Humbles me  - i.e. when I get things wrong.  Deepened my knowledge and love for my hobby.  And gave me quite a few laughs over the years (the good kind).

So thanks again everybody.

Shawn

Congrats Shawn, well deserved! Thanks Joe, I really didn't expect the award. I'm honoured just to be included on such a distinguished list.

And thanks to everyone's kind words, it really does mean a lot to me.

On an unrelated note, has anyone heard from Pat Lawrence (slokind) recently?  It looks like she was last active in July.  I miss her posts with their wit and insight.

I was wondering that too. Her last actual post was a Xmas message in December 2015 but, as you say, she was logging onto FORVM for some months after that.
