Default Passing of a friend

It has come to our attention, that COTI, and Traveller itself, has lost one of its greatest members.

You will be misses, Donald McKinney.

More will follow as we get other news.

Default A Star is Now a Nova - The Passing Of DonM

It is with sadness I offer my condolences to Don's Family and friends.

I developed great respect for him following his posts here and the massive effort he put into the Traveller universe.

Great blessings on him and those he left behind. He will be missed.

Don,

Until we meet again,
may God Hold you
in the palm of his hand.


and for the McKinney family:

Death leaves a heartache no one can heal; Love leaves a memory no one can steal. We who knew him are here to support you in your time of need.
