    Default Tom Eckhoff - Tome - RIP

    Tom died this morning at QA Portsmouth.

    Karen and Tom wished there to be a celebration of Tom's life with laughter and happiness at a later date. I will post with details.

    I am not sure how best to communicate to Karen the affection that so many here had for Tom. Is a virtual book of condolences a bit naff?

    I will forward any posts to her.

    Never met him except virtually through this forum, where I found his voice consistently interesting. I'm totally shocked at the news. My condolences to his family from Italy.

    Only met Tom the once at Yarmouth at the last Rally but seems like I knew him for ever....

    My thoughts go to his family.

    How dreadful. My thoughts are with his family and friends.

    I'll remember him whenever trimming my sails.

    My deepest sympathies to Karen and Tom's family.

    It was just a month ago, on 17th October, that Tom shared his diagnosis with us here. I'm sure he was heartened by the many messages of hope and support he received from forum members.

    I shall remember him as wise and helpful, with a quiet calm that added greatly to the quality of these boards.

    Rest in Peace.

    We met Tom just briefly once in Cherbourg but had much more virtual contact via the forums where he will be sorely missed.

    Condolences to his family.

    I have just heard the awful news. They say the best die young.

    And that describes Tom perfectly.

    I for one will miss him very much indeed.

    My thoughts will be with Karen and his family.

    Richard, I am truly shocked, it seems so soon since his diagnosis. Thanks for letting us know. I haven't the foggiest what to say to Karen, I am just another here who will be wishing her well as she struggles to move forwards in life.
