Terrible message concerning Darkflame

Hi,

Yeah, so, me posting, it's bad.

http://atresica.nl/images/qut/fml.html

I'm sorry we couldn't inform the community that brought us together earlier. It's all going quicker than we hoped.

Love,

Tresi

Yes, this is fucking real.

Hi Bertine,

I read your message a few hours ago when you posted it here and on Facebook. I didn't want to believe what I was reading. For the past few hours I've been trying to process that information and let that sink in... a lot of tears were involved. It still hadn't. I can't believe this is happening... I just want to wake up from this nightmare.

Even though I never met Thomas or even vocally spoken with him he's a very important person in my life. And he's a friend. This is devastating.

Is there still a way to reach to him?

Fuck man, I know what you mean. It's just so fucked up. We had hoped we had a lot longer since we heard three weeks ago the doctors could no longer control his disease.

At this moment, he's too weak and sleepy to access the pc. The only way to reach him is pass a message to me.

Trying to find right words to say in a situation like this. I can't find the right words. I can't honestly see how there could be any right words. Even though it is only through words on this forum that I have ever known Darkflame, his presence transcends those very words.

Still trying to wrap my head around all of this and all I can think to say here is that Darkflame matters to all of us and that our thoughts are with him, you and his whole family.

It wasn't easy for me emotionally but I sent you a PM. If it's not too troubling for either of you it would mean a lot if he receives it.

Indeed, very very sad news. Very unexpected. I understand why he'd want to keep it secret all those years, though.
I wish you a lot of courage and strength to go through this hell, and much love to Darkflame.

This is very saddening to hear. I really don't know what I can say in this situation, only that this must be absolutely horrible and that I wish you all the strength and courage that you need to deal with this. Much love.

Hi everyone.

Tom passed away last night. We talked with each other shortly before hand. Expressed love. Gave each other a kiss. Wished him a good night. He passed away next to me, peacefully, painless and asleep.

I am honoured to have known and loved a man like him. Let us celebrate his life and joy for life.

We had hoped of course things would last longer, but we soon found both peace with his fate.

I just want to thank you as a community so much. This game brought us together & was the sole reason we got to know each other. He sends all his love to you.

I am absolutely shocked. Don't need to explain just how much we didn't see this coming. Thomas was a great addition to this community, and as mentioned earlier in this thread a person whom you could call a true friend around here, even if you never even met him in person. I so regret not meeting him in person now, though.

I remember Thomas as a very quirky and funny person, who always ventured into new creative paths, and did so passionately and absolutely. I've always found that to be a trait I sometimes lack, or don't have the courage to, and that's something I'll always remember him for.

Best of luck in these horrible times, nobody should be in the position you're in, especially not at such young age. I wish you, and your family all the best. Also to friends and especially the rest of this community here.

Been trying to write anything meaningful since I first saw your post, but nothing that comes to mind seems to matter in light of such a horrible tragedy.

Tom will be remembered and missed.

This is terrible news. I haven't been on here in about 15 years, but Thomas is one of the few people I've been following on FB, and someone whom I always regarded to as one of the smartest people I've known. He will be missed.

I've been staring at the screen for too long. I'm really not great at writing this sort of thing. I'll simply end by saying my thoughts and love go to you and to Thomas' loved ones.

I'm very sad to read this. It's a tragedy. As others have pointed out, it's hard to write anything meaningful in this situation. Although we have never been close, I will always remember Darkflame as an intelligent, honest and kind person. He was the soul of this community. I wish you peace and strength. You are in my thoughts and prayers.

Not much I can add to what's been said. This is just terrible, terrible news.

Rest in peace Darkflame you'll always be with us on the MBN. He always been sage and knew how to talk to people. It was always a pleasure to discuss with him. #fuckcancer

Much love to Darkflame.
A good friend, companion and a wise member of this community.
I'm glad to have shared a part of my life with him, even if only virtually.

I... Can't begin to express what I feel... But felt stupid not writing anything. Rest In Peace, Darkflame.

Hold tight, Atresica, you can get through this.

Long time lurker here... and I still feel like I had known you. There are really no words to express my feelings in this horrible situation. This is a tragedy. Rest in peace, Thomas.

I don't post much, but I've been lurking here since around '02-'03 and DarkFlame was a veteran I always respected highly. This is very sad, may he rest in peace..
