Dear Masha,

I have so many fond memories of the time I spent with you and Tony at Zima on Sakhalin Island. I remember the warmth of your house, and the best borscht I have ever eaten, and the great company of you and Tony, who welcomed me into your lovely home.

I wish you all strength in this difficult time.

Yours sincerely,


Matthew

Maria,

Please excuse the interruption at this difficult period for you. I got your email from a friend and ex-colleague who currently works for Shell, because I want to personally pass on my condolences..

Starting in November 2004 I worked in Sakhalin for 4 years. I was part of Tony’s small team consisting of Peter, Tim, the two Olga’s and Irina. After a period of time I was moved to another department, at which point Tony became an adviser directly to Campbell.

I will always remember Tony in a very good light, and I am so sad to hear of his passing.

All the very best

Stuart

Dear Maria,

Just thinking of you as I lit a candle for Tony at Mass today..

When you have such trauma as you are going through, you need time to heal, time to pray, and time to be with family. Just want you to know that you will always be in my thoughts and should you ever feel the need to talk - I am here for you. The one thing that really helped me get through after Doug passed on, is this sentence: “Between Grief and Gratitude there is GOD.”

With much affection,
Edie

When I think back about my time with Uncle Tony I only smile because I’m left with many great memories that only an uncle can give to his niece.

When he would pick me up from soccer practice he had me sit on sheets of plastic so as not to get his Suburban dirty. He would pinch my "chubby cheeks" and when I would do the same to his, my little fingers would slide off because I believe he had vaseline on his face.

He would take my sister and me on many great adventures. We would stand in line for four hours at Disneyland to go on new rides. He put bike helmets on our heads to go rock climbing down on the cliffs of Palos Verdes. He would even deal with my sea sick stomach and take us for day trips to Catalina Island.

Having an Uncle that traveled the world has helped shape who I am. I thank you Uncle Tony for giving me the spirit to be an adventurer.

I love and miss you.
Kerry

Dear Masha,

I was so sorry to hear the very sad news about Tony.

You and Tony were two of the first people I met after I arrived in Sakhalin in November 2000 and I can still remember your welcome and friendliness. Tony was also very supportive in those early days during the handover from Marathon to Shell and always a consummate professional. It was a real pleasure to work with him and an honour to have known him.

All the very best during this very difficult time, Mike

Dear Masha,

Please accept my deepest condolences. I am so sad to wake to hear this news.

Tony was a very special man. He was talented, smart and kind. I remember the lovely times we spent at your house at Zima eating your borscht and enjoying the company of the two of you. You had a very special bond and he was so proud of you.

I can only imagine how you are feeling and wish you the strength and fortitude during the difficult times you face immediately and in the longer term.

Yours sincerely,


Matthew

Dear Maria,

It was with great sadness and a heavy heart that I finished reading your email.

Tony was some one for whom I have a great respect; he was a decent man, a good man and I am proud to have known him.

You and Tony always struck me as being a couple who lived for each other. I can not imagine your grief and loss.

I send you my deepest sympathy and condolences.

Sincerely,

Michael
