Hi dude. We never spoke much, never spoke at all in fact, but your passing was something that shocked me as I'm sure it shocked everyone else on Neoseeker. Reading through what your friends have written on your guestbook is touching to say the least, it seems that I missed out on getting to know a pretty awesome guy. Yeah we both joined in 2006, so I could have gotten to know you potentially, but I spent too much time lurking in my own little forums away from the hustle and bustle of Loungin'.
Your father left a comment on one of the signings below, telling us to get out and live our lives to the fullest, if not for ourselves then for you. Well, I did. I went and did things I thought I'd never do. I kicked my A-levels in the ass and I'm well on my way to university, I went rough camping with a friend when learned to hunt and cook a meal, I went on my first holiday alone, I even jumped out of a plane last week for charity, raising almost £1000 for the British Heart Foundation and giving my fear of heights a solid kick in the balls.
All these incredible experiences, life changing things, things that have made me grow as a person over such a short time, things that I never realised I would be capable of alone, I doubt any of these things would have happened had it not been for that little addition your father put on the end of his message, "Do it for Rob."
I never knew you, but thank you for these things, I did them for you. Sleep well dude.
