    As was mine. I don't think any have died in the recent past...

    What did he post under here at AI? I vaguely remember M3DJack being one of his names, but I couldn't find a LoCash here at AI.




    I recall him here at various times and in various guises as:



    turborodent

    M3DJack

    LoCash

    plus the occasional gonzo name change during his HST moments.



    But after the schism there was a purge, so I doubt you'll find those posts.

    Seems petty now. Whatever.



    He was a character, and definitely had a wicked sense of humour.

    He'll be missed. Many a glass will be raised from across the web.

    I just got a call from the Grim Reaper. All he said was, "Life's too short". I'm not sure, but I think this is what he meant so I thought I better post it here as well because misunderstandings suck.



    Vale Jack.



    Despite our past differences, I had a lot of time for you. When I saw this thread last night, I hoped it would turn out to be an elaborate joke. But I knew it wasn't. I gather from something Paul said that Jack had a sister who died and I vaguely recall this being mentioned in the past. The loss of one child is gut wrenching. To lose two is simply too awful to even contemplete. My heart goes out to Jack's parents.



    Perhaps something the living can get from this, is a little perspective. That the bitterness of last year was because people cared, because they valued what they had so highly. It's easy to fall into the trap of thinking you've lost something irreplaceable until you really do lose something irreplaceable. Passion may result in angry words but what it signifies is far preferable to indifference.



    Yeah, passion, that's the word.



    Without passion, what you've got is just an internet forum, anonymous names that live only in cyberspace. Add passion, and you get something that straddles the real and cyberspace worlds. The downside, as we're now being painfully reminded, is that reality bites. That's why many, myself included, are having so much trouble getting their heads around this.



    Jack had passion in spades. His loss reminds me not to take things for granted.



    In spite of whatever words have been exchanged in the past or might be exchanged in the future, I value all the passionate people who have made AI and AN not just internet forums to me but something unique and precious. Words are cheap. Passion is priceless.



    I note there's no word from Brad who, as cofounder of AN, I imagine has probably been hit for six by this news. I'm sure somebody's already thought to contact him and is looking out for him. I don't know what to say to Brad except I'm sorry and hang in there. Putting my thoughts into words is proving diffficult at the moment.



    Take care all.



    Please.

    Yah reality hit home with myself.



    I turn 24 in september.



    Crazy, I really like what you had to say about passion. It IS what makes this place special and a reason many of us keep returning.



    I'm glad I've got to hash it out and learn from all of you.

    AN is organizing flowers and depending on money another gift for his family in honor of him. If you'd like to donate you can from:

    I've just donated, and I hope other people do too. I wasn't a member of A.N., but this site should be able to be for everyone who knew him online, even if they've met him face-to-face like I have. Jack's Internet community was much larger than his "offline community," so it's important that his family knows we care.

    as of right now I don't believe anyone from AI or AN knows how it happened...



    my apologies if that is incorrect.

    That is correct. Although I think anyone that knew him would have only two suspicions.

    Absolutely. I am just saying I have two guesses. We'll wait to hear if we find out what happened.

    I never got to know LoCash, but I can understand from what he did post on this forum that he was a very intelligent and funny individual. We'll miss you forever.

    Wow, am I mistaken or is this the second AI moderator that passes away? I cannot remember the other one.



    Really "Weinen, Klagen, Sorgen, Zagen..." for his family. I am hearing it right now in iTunes. Liszt wrote it in 1863 to commemorate his daughter's death at an equally early age, based on an old cantate theme by Bach (BWV 12). Dramatic chromatic variations, heavy chords clashing in the keyboards, the pedal roaring loudly, darkness, terror, hallucinations. Sombre moments. "Was Gott thut, das ist wohlgetan".

    That's right but we are not sure. Belle vanished from these boards some years ago. She had a very serious disease, so we have very few hopes. She was also a very nice person and I will never forgot her.
