He passed away on new years eve.
No matter how sad or depressed you guys get please love life always, because it can be taken from you in a blink of an eye.
No .... :(
Many years ago we would sometimes talk on AIM. Although we weren't close at all, I clearly remember him as a really nice person. I'm sad to hear about this.
Scarecrow, I wish I had the right words right now, but just know that I care. Chin up. And of course, my thoughts go out to anyone else who was close to him.
Sorry to hear this boys.
rest in peace.
It's always surreal seeing your name next to someone who has passed. I still get sad every time I see Henshi's gamertag come up in one of my videos.
My happy Valentine's Day montage experience will never be the same... When I get home in a few weeks I'll grab my old HDD and see if I still have his clips on my computer. If I do, we can put together a tribute video. Cross your fingers <3
Didn't know him, but RIP.
I think of Lotus as part of the brick and mortar for H3F. He was so well known his famous tagline was memeticized on here.
Do you know what happened? Just curious.
Rest well, Lotus.
Damn that's too bad. I remember playing with him a few times around the time that we were in Elevation together. Crazy to think that now two people from that montage have passed away. From what I recall Lotus was a cool dude. RIP.
There should be permanent memorials on this site for Elmo, Henshi and Lotus, but then again nobody's gonna take a 45+ year old's idea seriously on a gaming forum.
But for no one else on the forum who passes away before their time? Is it a measure of popularity? Contributions to the community? Personality? Dying sucks, and we all unfortunately go through it. But we can't put up memorial pages just for the people who were popular. All the other chopped liver out there wouldn't feel so loved or accepted, would they? Hell, if I died tomorrow, how many of you would shrug and laugh?
I understand the need to memorialize, but remember, in the passing of a life, the most important step is acceptance--moving on. Making a tribute is fine, but cementing it is not only an unhealthy extension of grieving, but it's also hard work. If a section like that was made, and two, three, six years down the line pass, we have to move to a new domain--who's going to maintain it? Transfer it? Update and monitor it? It may seem like a good idea now, but less and less people will visit it, and it will eventually be forgotten. You may love and respect each other, but Time doesn't care who any of us are. Our lives will fade, and so too, will the memories of those lives.
sorry to be a downer, but that's just the way it works.
