    SolMan for many years was the tropical weather expert here on LG. I know that myself and many, many others relied on his expertise, especially while on vacation in the area.  We'll miss you, Andy.

    Wag more....bark less.

    What a shock! Solman has been a valuable an well respected member of the forum since 2006. Every time there was a storm on the horizon people would log onto the forum and check out Andy's excellent insight and weather knowledge for the latest information. He will be greatly missed by all of us. Andy was extremely happy for the last few years of his life having met the love of his life in Maggie (Kat) whom he had known through the forum for 12 years, and they were finally married in Akumal this year. He loved people and would do anything to help anyone. It appears that when he passed away, he was doing what he loved, snorkeling with others in Akumal Bay.
     
    Rest in Peace Andy. Kat, you have my deepest condolences. May the memories of the happy times you shared bring you smiles forever until you meet again.

    This is really sad news! I always knew I could count on SolMan's knowledge about the storms in and around Akumal. His posts will be missed by those who only knew him from the forums for sure. Condolences to his wife and family.

    Farewell Solman, I will miss our yearly discussions about the weather, and won't be able to think of hurricanes or tropical storms without always wondering what your thoughts are.  I guess if there is any consolation to him passing, at least he was where he wanted to be, doing what he loved.  Prayers go out to Kat for peace and comfort.

    My thoughts and prayers are with Katherine and his family.  While I never had the honour of knowing him face to face, his posts on the forum were always informative and I could tell he was a great guy.  I can't imagine what Katherine is going through, but I hope she can get through her sadness and be able to remember the happy times.

    I put this on the BC a few days ago, but the news about Andy made me very heartsick and so very sad for Kat. 
     
    I was fortunate enough to meet both of them in April, when I went on my trip with Holly. I am so happy for the time I was able to spend with them, and the times we were together I could see what happy newlyweds they were. I even had a bit of a conversation with Andy at Casa Cenote, and he told me that Kat was the best thing that ever happened to him.
