    Poptom: A Speedguide member has passed

    I just want to let everyone know that Poptom passed away on Saturday. I know he hasn't been posting much lately, but he had been really weak the last few months. He liked this forum a lot and he spoke highly of the members.

    Wow.

    I kinda wondered if something was up. We hadn't even see him browsing the site for some time.

    To let you know, he was a popular member of this forum.

    I had a lot of respect for him and he'll be missed for sure. My sincerest condolences go out to his family.

    Thank you for droping in and letting us know.

    I really do dislike cancer.


    Neil King, what is your relation to Poptom, if I may ask?

    I am his grandson.

    I just got done reading his cancer thread, and wow, you guys are awesome. He was right to speak highly of everyone.

    Thanks everyone for your replies.

    I'm so sorry Neil. Just the other day I was thinking of him and other members that haven't posted. This is shocking news.

    As John stated I too went to Tom for some behind the scene advice in the past. He sure will be missed.

    RIP Poptom

    I just sent him a PM last Monday, asking how he was doing...

    He hasn't been around much the last year due to his condition, however, he was still in our thoughts, and always will be...

    My condolences to his family and friends as I know it is a great loss to all, including us, his cyber family...

    RIP, PoppaTom, RIP
