My very good friend Malcolm Holder, who posted here on CaribbeanCricket.com as BeachBum up to a couple of years ago, died last weekend. From Barbados, he loved life, his friends and family and all things Caribbean.

Mally, as we called him, started out as a policeman in Barbados, but then he migrated to the USA and went to college, where he graduated with a degree, in computer science, I believe. He worked at the same time, and raised several kids, the youngest of whom are still in their teenage years.

Always the fun-loving optimist, it was a pleasure and blessing to share life with him. If there is life after death on Earth, it would be an honor to share that life with him too,

A teenage child suggests that he died too young. Sympathies to his family.

Sad to know that one of our very own poster has passed.

BeachBum was a decent poster, upbeat and pleasant.
