I am sad to read about this!

I belong to the type who does not step out to make friends outwardly. But MM's articles are one of my favorites. If I am not mistaken, he had passed one or two Chinese TT articles to me about two years ago, I obliged to help doing the translation. Not much communication with him, but always had him in my mind. I am shock.

I have planned to go to Sydney in late first quarter of 2011, and meet up with the forum mates, MM inclusive. But now....... :|

Rest in peace, my friend.

As a few people here have already suggested, it would be great if we put some messages together from all us and have someone present it to MMs family before of after the funeral. I'm open to suggestions and I'm willing to organise or help organise something...

Chris introduced me to the TT scene in Sydney. He took me to many a club and introduced me to countless people. He was genuinely one of the nicest people I have ever met. Always very friendly and welcoming. He will be missed.

From reading his posts and the opinions of those who knew him, he really did seem like a great guy. What a shame that someone so young and full of life has passed on. He will surely be missed.

Wish I could know a little more about him. He was the first to answer me when I joined this forum a couple of months ago. Nothing extraordinary you might say but that left a tiny positive mark in my life. Dear friend, on the other side of the globe you will be remembered too.

If there are any messages that you would like us to pass onto MetalMonkey's wife and family, please either post them here, or PM them to me if you would like to add something person or your real name.

I will compile all the message into a file, and we will add them to a message on behalf of all forum members that Reb has written, and this will be printed and passed onto MetalMonkey's wife and family.


As suggested by another one of our friends here, I will also add a memorial page to this site in honour of MetalMonkey, where we will add the names of our friends here that we have lost, so that we will always remember them.

When I read this news the other day I honestly didn't know what to say, so sad to hear this. While I didn't know MM personally I have read many of his posts which has helped me. I feel for his wife and family and hope only the best for them during this time of grief. He will be missed for sure.

On behalf of all the members of our forum, Reb has written folowing message, to be presented to Chris' wife and family:
Quote:
The OOAK table tennis forum members are in mourning for we have lost one of our favorite sons.

Chris was an avid table tennis player and fan. His knowledge helped so many on our forum.

Chris will be remembered fondly and warmly by all who knew him.

He touched the hearts of so many with his generous spirit and his kindness.

The members of the OOAK forum would like to express our deepest condolences to all of Chris' family and friends.

Farewell dear friend, it was an honour and a pleasure to have known you. May you rest in peace.


We have also included the messages that people have PMed me, and that were written here.

I have created a Memorial Page (thanks Debater for this great idea!) for members that have passed on, which I have dedicated to Metal Monkey for his great contribution here, and the friendship that he offered to so many of us. A link to this page will be added to the header of this site.

Today is Metal Monkey's funeral, so it's a day to remember him and to reflect back on the great memories and friendship he has offered us.

For today, I have added a link (top right) to the Memorial page on this site, that is dedicated to him.
