(By request) I will be attending Entei (John Lau)'s funeral this Wednesday
Many of you, especially IRC-goers, have heard the tragic news that Entei passed away last week in a car accident. His funeral proceedings will be taking place this Wednesday. As I just so happen to live in the city where the funeral is taking place, I will be in attendance for all events (have contacted his brother and scheduled the day off work).
John and I were not extremely close, but his death has affected me, and I'm sure many of you, significantly. He was still very young, 2 days ago would have been his 30th birthday. John was a great guy who had friends just about everywhere, and we'd like to give all of his friends, no matter how far away, an opportunity to pay their respects and share their sympathies.
If any of you have any kind words you would like me to pass along to the family in person, please either reply to this thread or send me a PM (PM is preferred since I think it'll go straight to my e-mail).
The good folks at the IRC channel are organizing a memorial blog to eventually share with the family. If you'd like to submit, check out the IRC for details. I'm sure you'll all keep it tasteful without me having to ask.
Cherish every day, and make sure the people you love know it.
Stef "Ninten" K.
