On behalf of Van's class of 1958, I wish to extend our condolences for your loss. We've tried to get him home for reunions several times, however, he never made it. Know that he is fondly remembered in a lot of our minds as a classmate we all liked and respected. Reading about his life and family was very uplifting. God Bless the Tobin family at this time.

A very unselfish and most tolerant and generous big brother any one could have. You literally gave me the shirt off your back. You lived your life as you wished, maybe a bit different, but wouldn't it be a shame if we were all the same. You left a legacy through Sean, Tamara,Tara,Ryan and Barbara. You were always so tolerant, patient and taught me so much. One thing you forgot to teach me was how to say good-bye. You and Monk take care and I'll be along. As we always closed: "I love you brother" Cup

Van was just a cool guy who was sensible at every level. He loved Barbara Blue Eyes more than anything! I am proud to have known him and witness his brilliant artistic nature first hand!

Thank you Van, for sharing some of your time and wisdom with me as we listened to Bob Dylan, Muddy Waters, BB King, Lightning Hopkins, and John Lee Hooker records back in Marshall Missouri. At my studio soul city--always reading something to me as I was painting . . . you and David Scudder. We were not afraid to be different. Although we all went our separate ways. I always will have those great memories as we talked about our dreams. And a world without wars, hatred and hunger. We did what we did as we searched for ourselves. We were not ships passing in the night. But ships who stopped, enjoyed each other's company in this brief moment we call life. Your friend, Mike Henderson, aka Hindu.
