Cancer sucks. I hate it like nothing else on this planet.

My sincerest condolences to Anthony's friends and family.

I was saddened to read this news this morning. I had just become FaceBook friends with him and somehow thought we would get to visit someday. He seemed like such a kindred spirit, especially with my surname going back to England of 1628. Discussing British history would have been an enjoyable conversation. May you Rest In Peace, Tony!

Default Sincere condolences

I never knew Anthony (Tony) but like others, I enjoyed reading his VAF postings. My sincere condolences to Anthony's family and friends. Keep strong. I feel your pain.

My Dad, also named Tony, passed away from cancer 11/11/11, just a week before Anthony's original "Taking it on the chin" post. Reading Anthony's post and all the replies was very hard for me. It was only a few days before my Dad's funeral.

Dad was very poorly in July and August and was diagnosed with tumours in his colon and liver at the end of August and then further diagnosed with two more tumours in his brain a week or so later. During October, when Dad was in the hospice, I took a few bits of wiring in and Dad helped me crimp some terminals for the autopilot data feeds. So one day, when I get the -7 flying on autopilot, my Dad will be helping me stay straight and level.

I remember reading someone's first flight writeup where they said their only regret was not being able to take their father for a flight. I feel the same. I know when that first flight happens all the excitement will be tinged with the sadness of not being able to share it with Dad. But I do know how proud he was of me for what I had done in setting about building the plane. He thoroughly enjoyed looking over the plane in the garage whenever he visited.

Do yourself a favour - take your Dad flying or get them to help in your build. Sadly, bad things can and do happen. You don't get much advanced notice when the last chance will be.

I will join the ranks as one who HATES cancer. It takes to many wonderful people. It carries to high a price. Godspeed Anthony, may you rest in peace.

So sad. A few mates are arriving this afternoon to share a few ales. We will toast the 'Island Monkey' and wish his family well.

When the weather clears we will enjoy few aeros in memory of him.

Condolences

Default Sorry to hear

I like most, did not know Anthony, but I read his posts and was inspired by his positive attitude when he told the news of his illness. The sentiments here and the way he is being remembered by family and friends says he was a good man. It is always a sad blow when the world looses someone like that, because there are never enough of them.

I too will raise a frothy one to his memory

Jim
