Sorry just a quick note before I ask for this acccount to be deleted .Some of you might remember “Dukey ‘ who has been with wikivorce since it started - he has advised on the helpline and responded to lots of requests.I am his partner- we met through Wikivorce in 2008.Sadly Carl passed away on Wednesday suddenly after a short illness,He was a lovely man and will be sadly missed. RIP - ccXx
Carl was a lovely man who helped countless people. He embodied the very spirit of wikivorce. We have travelled our wikivorce journey together for many years. So very very sorry to know Dukey has passed but the work he did for others won't be forgotten. My thoughts are with you.
I am so sorry to hear this news: my divorce was finalised a few years ago, Carl gave me so much advice (here, via PM and on the helpline) and I got a great settlement. Pretty much all down to him. Rest in peace Dukey.
Carl was the loveliest of people, so kind, caring, thoughtful, selfless with a wonderfully dry and wicked sense of humour. He made time for everyone. Through Wiki, he helped quite literally thousands of people through one of the most difficult and stressful life events there is. He picked me up when my (now ex) husband left me penniless, and supported me during those dark early days. He made the world a better place.
If you read the feedback section, you will so many comments and thank yous from just a small number of those he helped.
I recall one time when he received a call on the helpline from a woman about to go to court, she had no representation and was terrified. He dropped everything, stopping only to quickly change into something smart and went to court to be this lady's McKenzie Friend. That was so typical of Carl and his desire to help others.
He will be missed by all who knew him, he was a very special person. My thoughts and love are with his family, partner and close friends.
I was so sad to hear this news. This man was my lifeline during my divorce. Along with my other wiki friends, he kept me sane and was always there to give advice. I would not be here without him. My thoughts are with his family and friends. Xxxx
