Tom's Photo On AVSIM Front Page

Recommended Posts

I am thinking it will be a permanent fixture if the rest of the board agrees.  It's nice to see Tom when I'm looking around AVSIM.

 

Anyone who is better than me at Photoshop is welcome to design a memorial banner for him.


Sincerely,

Chase

I am new here, so I don't want this to appear as disrespectful.

 

I find the idea of that picture with a black RIP ribbon being on the front page permanently to be morbid.

 

I didn't know Tom Allensworth personally.  Perhaps he would like perpetual mourning of his death.  But, I bet he would prefer that everyone recognize his great contributions and then move on with life.

 

I didn't have my late wife buried on our front lawn so that I would have a reminder of her death every day that I drive up the drive.  I visit her and chat once a week.  I have even been known to miss a day once in a while, but she doesn't seem to mind.

 

I suggest a reasonable period of mourning (perhaps a month or two), and then, as with Tom, we move on.  Of course there should be a permanent memorial to the man and to his contribution to our hobby -- just not on the front page.  From my perspective, that is almost disrespectful in a Madison Avenue sort of way.

 

RIP Tom Allensworth.

 

FWIW

I would like to see the photo stay on the front page, but I agree that the black ribbon should be removed after a suitable period of time.

Agreed. No-one mourns forever.

Hi,

 

After an appropriate amount of time, the mourning band can be removed. But I believe, his photo should remian, with a subpage to Tom's/ AVSIM's history.

 

 With all due respect to the new gentlemen here at AVSIM, there is a big difference between burring an individual on your front lawn and a photo on a web page. Lets keep things in perspective, I'm sure you didn't remove all the photos of your wife from your home.

Yes.  That sounds reasonable to me.
