Such sad news. Like many in the DataFlex community, I didn't know Tony much outside of DISD, MMiSL and Synergy interactions and technical exchanges via e-mail and in the newsgroups and forums. I have found that knowing someone over many (many) years, even just remaining near the surface, creates it's own special bonds. I always looked forward to seeing Tony at one of the various conferences. I was even happier on those occasions where he was on the agenda. And I always scanned the bar, er, restaurant, to see if there was room for me to intrude at whatever table he was holding court. We were all so very lucky to have him in our lives, even for only moments.

I wish peace for Karen, his girls and the rest of of his family and close friends. Even though his time was far too short, you were blessed to have so much of him.
