Prayers for his family.

Funny how the character of a person comes through even over the internet. He was a person of good character and those of us on FR will definitely feel the void.

I am so very sorry - did not even know he was sick. I have always had great respect for his efforts on FR. I never remember anything, anything that was rude, crude, or over the top.

Thank you Mr. Tonkin - indeed you will be missed.

So very sad.

My thoughts and prayers are with Brian and his loved ones. Tonkin has been missed for so long, was praying that all would be OK with him, sadly...that was not to be, but I know Brian is in a beautiful place now.

Rest In Peace, Tonkin. Thankful that we met in the Canteen many years ago. There is a Freeper Heaven, with a whole lot of chatting going on, bless all of you.

Thank you for the ping, LUV W.

Colleen
