Tocino has passed away – he died last Wednesday, the 21st.
Boadicea has been in regular contact with Toc, so we were aware of his ill health, which he did not wish to be made public. Around the beginning of this month he was told that he had six months to live, but in his last e-mail – a couple of weeks ago – he mentioned that he had been receiving extra treatment.
Tocino was an excellent blogger and a good cyber-friend. We shall miss him greatly.
Our heartfelt sympathy to his wife and family.
