We all are only too aware of the terrible tragedy that happened in Norway last Friday, and the whole Norway nation is now in mourning, along with the rest of us.
Tore was the leader of AUF Hordaland, which is the young Labour Party in Hordaland, one of 19 states.
Tore was one of the members of the Norwegian Newcastle United Supporters and he was also a writer for the Norwegian blog for the local Newcastle fans in Norway.
Whether we like it or not, Newcastle United fans across the world are family, and those of us who are daft enough to write Newcastle blogs should maybe think of ourselves as a special family too – and we should certainly not be competitors.
And perhaps we should all start treating each other with just a little bit more civility – and maybe we can all start doing that in memory of Tore Eikeland.
I send my sincere and deepest regrets to his family and friends of this loyal Newcastle United supporter, whose life was so tragically cut short.
May Tore Eikeland rest in peace.
