*sean kinkade has passed away *

With great shock and very great sadness, I have just received an disturbing email from Carl Kinkade.

I Quote:

" Angelo, Could you please inform the forum people that...Sean Kinkade died Saturday, February 23, 2013 at 7:15pm in an auto accident in Montana. Yes, this is for real and not a joke. He really died. I didn't even know he had gone to Montana. I was asleep when he left, because I've been sick with the flu. I only found out he wasn't home when I answered the door and the policeman told me.

Thank you, Carol." :End Quote

I will definitely miss our brother Sean. He was a visionary, genius and a master at his craft. I will miss our 3 hour conversations on the phone about his " ethics" and about his birds....man I can't believe this is happening now! I guess this shows us that we don't know.. Ecclesiasties 9:11.

Let please keep Sean's family in our prayers...and Revelations 21:3,4, Isaiah 25:8 and Isaiah 6-9 that I am personally awaiting.

I have NO idea what this means for customers who haven't received their orders yet...

With very best regards.... Angelo

Sad to hear of this news. The world has lost a great genius but his designs live on. So sorry that this has happened. My thoughts are of his family in this time of hardship.

Sean - Guess I'll see you in the next life. Meanwhile, enjoy where ever you are now and forget about making ornithopters. BTW - I still have your Slow Hopper and Glide Hawk.

I can not imagine this tragic fate.
It was my friend for 13 years.
I bought and sold during these years all Sean 's ornithopters.
He spoke French very well which facilitated our discussions.
What a long way since the VT1 and Skybird!
I am convinced he could build a scale ornithopter.
I think the engineer Kinkade is already studying the wings of angels and chat with Leonardo da Vinci.
Condolences to Carol and her little boy.
