Shades of Shaylanna
Playing in Iplay I have had the great fortune of meeting some fantastic people. Some of whom I have been blessed to meet in real life. We shared a lot of fun times whether we had good meld or not and the loss of them is felt deeply. This is one page I hope not to have to update again.
Tom DeMars aka hoyles_dad
August 20 1940- January 18 2003
At this time I don't have a pic of Tom but wanted to put something here as so many have asked me to and want to be able to express their sorrow to Tom's family. Instead of putting a poem here I think this email I received from 1 of Tom's many friends in Iplay sums up how so many feel..
I just heard the news about him L and I would like to tell all he touched my heart in a special way. I want to tell all who he was and what he means. When he walked in a playing room there was always a nice word from him. He was friendly and polite and the respect he had for a tourney host made us all smile . Underneath I want to quote something that happened at a tourney.
