I am very sorry to hear about Onno's passing. Although I have never met him personally, I have followed his work in TMU for several years and have witnessed the selfless way in which he helped people. His professional advice was naturally outstanding. But even more remarkable was his kindness and willingness to devote endless amounts of energy to helping other people. TMU is a wonderful legacy that I hope you will continue. My heart goes out to you and your family at this difficult time. I will keep him in my memory.

Hi Laura, I was profoundly saddened to hear the news of Onno's passing just now and just wanted to express my deepest sympathies to you on your loss.

As you may or may not know, Onno and I had spoken at length on a number of occasions over the years, even for multiple hours at a time. As I'm sure you can imagine, it was always a rare treat to speak with someone who shared my (very arcane) passion for providing consumers with independent and trustworthy information about mattresses...

I had the utmost respect for Onno and will miss collaborating with him. There is no doubt that he had a great depth and breadth of knowledge in this area, and a gift for distilling it for others. But what I appreciated most was the integrity with which he approached his work, and his dedication to helping each last person.

I am so sorry again for your loss, and wish you the best of luck in carrying on with the site. Please don't hesitate to reach out to me any time in the future if you would like to get acquainted.

I'm so terribly sorry to hear of the loss of your husband. Thank you for opening your home to us as we know it took significant personal time for you both to build TMU into what it is today. Your work has helped so many.

Gratefully and regretfully,

Bryan..

Laura, as I told you on the phone, I know what you are going through better than anyone. Onno's loss was a heart breaker to me personally because we had talked about him coming to Phoenix in the near future so we could finally meet face to face. He and I shared so many things in common beyond the mattress industry it was almost scary. I will miss our 2 hour phone calls (at minimum) and the uplifting persona known here as Phoenix.
I am proud to be a founding member of the MU and am equally excited to know his work will be carried on by yourself. His and your efforts have not gone without much gratitude from the members of this community. I have personally advised many mattress industry suppliers in the past to be sure and take his phone calls because the information they provide will be shared throughout the world via the MU. The knowledge that you and he provided and will continue to provide is crucial in navigating the turbulent waters of the mattress industry.

The service you provide is second to none and the advice given is first class, just like Onno. A brighter day is just around the corner and rest assured, if you need anything from me I will be here to help out in any way I can. After 40 years in the industry I might have learned a thing or two that could help out someone in need so don't be afraid to contact me if you get stumped. Thanks again for all you do and Rest In Peace my dear friend Onno.
