Usekh aka Branwen@Darkspires
He was a good guy who I really only knew through this site, and yet he was light hearted and humane. His passing diminishes us.
And to restate what has become a mantra to my life lately: Fuck Cancer.
I followed his battle that he would talk about on here and back on WORA. I admired his strength to be able to handle everything that came at him with a sense of grace. He never seemed down about it, he always seemed to accept it for what it was and fight forward despite that.
I never knew him on any place but here, but I always admired that about him.
And for the rest of us? We're all a little lesser for his passing. He will be missed.
Loved his character on DarkSpires. Humour is the best and only weapon against this darkness and Branwen wielded it sharply.
Fuck cancer, man. Fuck cancer.
Only just found this, but...if it makes a difference, his gaming online was mentioned at the funeral service as having been a great and positive part in his life. The friends he made there, and more (er, but not any enemies ;). The funeral was good, and his views on euthanasia and politics were celebrated there.
I also had a lot of people's RL names/Online names added to the 'guestbook' there. Can't give a list, but chances are if you commented on his Facebook or online about being not able to be present at the funeral, I found you and added you (I had dozens).
