    As Craig Boddington said "The PH fraternity is a lesser place without him". Sad day indeed.

    I did not know Ian, but I had met him on occasion and seen him in many videos. A fine PH and by all accounts a gentleman. My condolences to his family. A tragedy.

    A very sad day. I'm sure his Chifuti family will send an update to us on a fund for his family to which we can donate. They put themselves on the line for us in so many ways. Making a contribution to help the family will at least be some way to show our appreciation. My condolences to all those who knew and cared for Ian.
