The news of SG just saddened both Guard and I. We lived in Va Beach so we knew Tom personally. Thinking back about all the times we would meet SG on Guard's day off for lunch at the pool hall. SG was the first person to take me to me Hooters...as I protested I didnt really care to see girls in skimpy shorts.. he said oh no.. they have great wings.....lol,,,,sure Tom that is why we went there....lmao...SG and I fought like crazy in TW but outside of the game I would always consider him my friend. He was a gentleman. He helped me and my daughter pick out her first car, which she loved. He helped Guard move his furniture in when he moved from Ohio to Va Beach...lent him a cell phone because the phone company was on strike. We have many fond memories of the man named Tom.. We have out pouring sympathy for Dena and TJ (we remembering taking SG's son when he was around 10 to play lazer tag and had a blast with him.. a great boy) your lost is so great but the memories of the husband and father are even greater. Our thoughts and prayers are with you both. Wish we could be in Va Beach but I understand from Guard that you will be up in PA when we get to Va Beach next week.

@ Guardian, most of us know how you feel there.

@ Sing, Thanks for getting this out to us for Dena.

@Miss, yeah this is a bad circumstance to be sure of, and I plan on being around for a while if possible.

My prayers are out for Dena and family on this sadness. I hope they can make it through this okay.

Also if any or all of us can, would you all go to my twitter page and pay some respects to SG as well, I gave him a send off there before I found about the facebook page.

SG deserves the great send off as anyone could get, he was a great mentor when I was out of the game for a long time the last time I was away, and I feel he will be missed by more people than we know.

He was that good and really a good teacher. I am going to miss him a lot, I lost my argueing buddy and friend.

Edit: Hey Bad Girl, sorry for not saying hey to you as well earlier, you must have slipped your post in as I was posting.

I think we should get JP to rename the pod manufacturer in SG's honor...

[quote="Singularity"]I just heard from his wife that SG (aka Tom) has passed away. He went
in this morning with heart problems, crashed several times, but didn't
make it.

His wife is planning the arrangements. I don't really know what else to
say...[/quote]

Ummm, ...D@mn!
We've known Tom for a number of years. Only met him once in KC at a micro TWCon.
He will be sorely missed!
Please keep us posted.

We had the same thought and have dispatched an e-mail to JP, both PM here as well as e-mail and other methods. Hopefully he will receive it and can see his way clear to grant the request.

I agree Sing on the renaming the manufacturer in SG's honor, and can picture SG Smiling. Either Space Ghost Industries, or Boo Inc. Either would be great.

Wow, what a shock. Very sad news indeed. We had many great games together and against each other. He will be missed. I am glad I got a chance to catch up with him not to long ago. My prayers are with his family.

I hope JP will consider the request.

Such a loss to our community. He taught me so very much. I will miss him. :cry:

I love the idea of renaming the pod manufacturer after him, he would get a kick out of that move.

Good bye my friend, and hugs.
