Oh my... is this...?
« on: 29.08.2011, 15:09:55 »

I just found out about this and I don't know if it's true at all but... oh my goodness...

If I am reading this right, GizGiz (who was at EF a while ago) just... ended it yesterday, by driving his car into the path of an oncoming truck.... I just don't know what to say...

I am so sorry for his loss and for those who knew him...

If this is true it's yet another sad day in the furry fandom... I can't reach FA, they're probably being flooded to the point of crashing.

I read about that early in the morning and refused to believe it was really him in the first moment. And even though I barely knew him, this didn't kept me from shedding a tear for him. One wouldn't have guessed he had any problems by his appearance. He was a nice and bright-mooded person, as far as I saw.

Let that be a warning to everyone with personal issues: don't let them eat you up from the inside. Find someone to talk about them.

My deepest sympathies go out to the survivors, especially the truck driver.

This!
That reminds me of that plane pilot who decided to end his own life by throwing his plane on a cliff.. (along with the 155 other people in the plane, who actually didn't asked to die at all!)
