    Just a note of appreciation...

    I just found out a friend of mine; Tony aka Toonamp from Photocamel who lived over in the U.K. lost his life in a MVA. He was a prolific and talented photographer, who will be sorely missed.

    This has me reflecting on the impact that my family and friends here on FWW, and just in case I haven't said it lately, I appreciate how much you've been a part of my life since I wandered over here from 'next door'. I've learned a lot, had a bunch of laughs, a few 'grumps', but this is by far my favorite Forum, and you all have impacted my life on so many levels. Just wanted to say 'thanks'.

    The whole thing about appreciating this forum, yeah, well right back at you big guy

    Sorry to hear of the loss of your friend. Times like this should show all of us that we must enjoy every day we are given to the fullest.

    You're right about our Family here. I've been elsewhere as well but appreciate the quality of people here, such as you.
