As sad as this is, and this is tragically sad, I really hope that that it doesn't stop others striving to live their dream. What has happened to Roger and Margaret is abhorrent, and I am sure the perpetrators of this crime will be duly caught and given the sentence they deserve (If such a sentence exists for such a cowardly act, if not I can think of a few) But living the dream, sailing the world really can be as exciting and romantic as it sounds. My thoughts are with the family and friends of Roger and Margaret. Lets not let their aggressors and murderers put others off living what can be a fulfilling lifestyle.
God Bless.
