    Thank you Neil.

    I'm sorry for your loss.

    Peace, Poptom.

    ...****.

    I hope whatever happens to him now, well, I hope it's good and he gets to enjoy it. He was a good man.

    That's right. He has a huge shelf full of them in his office.

    from poptoms daughter

    I want to thank everyone here who was my fathers friend for being his friend. He had few friends in person. My son Neil, has been familiar with this forum so I asked him to let people know that he had died. Neil has alot of the same values as my father and they have a strong bond. I knew this was an important forum to my father. I met my own best friend on a forum and have been close to her for six years. I dont ever underestimate the way friendships can be formed and all of you who took part in his life were a blessing to him.

    Once again,
    I Thank You All.

    omg, just saw this and I don't know what to say.

    I was also lucky enough to share a conversation or two with pop, and he was a genuinely great guy. He will be sorely missed

    Prayers and condolences for yall ...

    I was just wondering what had happened to him a few weeks back...

    He will be greatly missed. I wouldn't say I was close to him, but I greatly admired him and his determination in not letting the news of cancer get him down...

    Sad news indeed. Makes me want to search for everything he said to me here and take it to heart.

    I hope it was...painless (lack of other words) for him and that he was well cared for till the last.

    Tom, you will be missed... Nick and Paula, my condolences and prayers are with you and your family.

    I missed this post until right now.

    This is really terrible news. I hope his family are doing as well as expected.
