This is an unusual one, but it shows the sense of community that we have here.
Whilst doing a bit of perusing here and there a few days ago, Goldenband (Phil) was reminded of a young man, Thomas Birch, a visitor of several sites including Yeeshkul and TTD.. Phil came across one of Thomas' last posts here way back in 2010:
in which he mentioned that he was a young man seriously ill with cystic fibrosis. He had a heart-lung transplant earlier in his life and unfortunately his second set of lungs were starting to fail too.
Out of a sense of duty and comradeship Phil decided to follow-up that post in order to find out what happened to Thomas. After some detective work and contacting Thomas' father Ian, Phil was sadly, but unsurprisingly, informed that Thomas did indeed die back in January 2012.
So Thomas, it might be several years late, but Shine On, young man. You will not be forgotten.
And many thanks to Phil for caring enough to seek him out.
