Loc: Western USA

we lost a friend, Ethan from the Netherlands by suicide Friday or Saturday, as reported by jens in chat today.

We lost one of our own, but there was another choice.

Loc: in my own world in pittsburgh,...

thanks for the notification.

I propose we hold a moment of silence in his honor. I know that sounds peculiar, but I wonder if there is a way to do this.

Ethan, whereever you are:

But Not Forgotten

We will remember, you are gone but not forgotten
Now your love lives free beyond the pain
You'll be a star of hope above high heaven
feeding hearts who seek the courage to remember your name.

Peace, bro, see you on the other side,

To my lost brothers,

I will always remember you and I will always miss you. I cannot agree with your choice to take your own life since feel it is not a option. You made your choice and it is left to us to pick our selfs back up. I choice to honor you by moving on in my life. I choice to heal my self in honor of you. I choice to live my life to the fullest and to enjoy life as it comes my way.

Lt us try to remeber how they lived their life and not the way they passed. I remember the times that we laughed and cried in the chartrooms. I remember that the last thing I told you was that I love you. I remember you and I will always remember you.

lots of love, Nathan

That is tragic news, and yes, there is another choice.

My choice is for ME to deal with the pain, and although I share my pain with so many others I refuse to hand it over completly.

I will think of Ethan, and Woz, and those whose names I can't recall, often. My best friend Mick as well.


Go confidently in the direction of your dreams! Live the life you've imagined. As you simplify your life, the laws of the universe will be simpler.

I would like to also add that let us not dwell on their deaths but rather on their lives. Who they where is not really lost, we will always remember them and they live on in our hearths and minds.

lots of love, Nathan
