Words I need to share with our Community

Recommended Posts

Never met you Tom. Never even spoken or written to you before, but a huge thank you for all the enjoyment you have helped to give me and many other people. 

 

Thank you so much

 

Your unknown friend

Tom,

I was very saddened to learn of your cancer and the prognosis.  It is difficult and painful to contemplate what you and your family are coping with.  My thoughts will be with you and your family.

 

It is hard to find the words to express how much I appreciate and value the AVSIM community you have nurtured, encouraged, and sustained over many years.  Thank you.

When I read this news yesterday, I simply didn't know how to react. I still don't know how to react.

 

Even though I've never met Tom or anyone else from the AVSIM forum in person, the community we have is in many ways quite like an extended family. Whenever we get news of this nature I can't help but react emotionally - especially if it is a long time member of our community. In this case it's the first member, and the impact was simply devastating to me last night.

 

As you take on this battle, know that AVSIM is in good hands with the team you've assembled over the years.

 

Take care of yourself, Tom. Know that there are so many of us concerned for your well being and wishing on you and your family nothing but good thoughts and prayers. This may sound trite, but if there's anything else we can do, please don't hesitate to ask.

I don't know you personally, but my heart too hit the floor. You exemplify the kind of guts I'd want to display in such a situation.

 

Thank you sir for creating a place where I could go to relax all these years, a place of cordiality, discipline, camaraderie and learning. Your steady stewardship has meant more to me than I can ever begin to express.

 

Godspeed Tom, wherever the road leads, strength to you and family in this challenging time.


Regards,

Mark

Tom, this is very sad to hear.

AVSim have been the place where I have found many good adons.
One can see, when there is put much time, entuiasme and soul into a project. These qualities can also be seen in AVSim, so a BIG THANK YOU shall sound from me, for what you have done for the simulator enthusiasts.

Hope that your last time among us will proceed at the very best way.

AVSIM has brought so much value into my hobby. Thank you so much for this. As so many have already said the time has now come to focus on yourself and your loved ones. Spend as much time as you can with them and do what you feel is right at each moment. AVSIM is a thriving community and I am sure, you have a competent staff that can take over.

 

Again, thank you so much for AVSIM and the immense value it brings to our hobby. My thoughts go to you and your loved ones and I shall pray that your remaining time shall be comfortable, painless and that you, at the end, can move on looking back at a great life with a sense of joy and satisfaction of everything you have experienced, learned, and accomplished.

 

You have brought joy and value into many people's lives. Know that this is a great accomplishment that only few achieve.
