We can use this thread to pay tribute and our respects to the people who recently died.

Famous, Fictional, or Close friends.

You read my mind. I was thinking about making one of these a few months ago when Current Thoughts was really getting cluttered with death.

When I read the topic title, I thought it would be for forum members who don't post anymore.

How do you know what kind of pictures they are if you're such a lay-dee?

Wade Belak, former Toronto Maple Leafs enforcer, is dead. He was only 35 and I remember watching him as a kid. He, Tie Domi, Alex Mogilny, and Mats Sundin were my favourite players. It's somewhat of a shock.

It's also the third recent death of an NHL enforcer. Rick Rypien committed suicide a few weeks ago and before that, Derek Boogard died. It almost sounds like the plot of a serial killer mystery novel...

It's slightly late, but I feel the Lokomotiv tragedy should be remembered. I will remember some of them as fine hockey players, but they were fine people before they were players. I can only extend my condolences to those touched personally.

I just found out that my acting coach, friend of my agent, and actress Silvana Gallardo passed away yesterday. :(

She was a great inspiration to the acting world. May she rest in peace.

There is a reason why this video is this thread.

The actor, Andy Whitfield died last September.

This isn't as much as a physical death as it is emotional.

My little brother was taken away today by his biological parents. I understand why and it's because of my own immaturity and incapability of acting like a mature adult and not teaching him what's right and what's wrong. I hope I see him again but if not I hope that he grows up to be the successful man he deserves to be.

Siblings always have a strong bond in my opinion, blood related or not.

I'm sure he'll always remember you. The best thing to do is think about the goods times.

Do you have his parent's address?

Well I was neglected to be informed that this is only temporary. Still nonetheless I don't like the fact that they are invading our family since we've had him for 12 years since he was a few months old. We're still trying to figure out the why's...

What has your little brother said?

It seems insane to me they would want to relocate him after 12 years of mutual bonding.

The whole thing is because his birth parents requested to stay in contact with him after the adoption and we agreed (foolish us) and he, being a red blooded preteen, was watching porn. I'm to blame because I didn't tell anyone of this.

WTF?? They are overreacting. Punish him. Not the family that was there for him. But this isn't going to last. Like I said they agreed with my parents for a few weeks for him to be with them. I just was neglected to be informed that it was a few weeks and consequently feared I would never see him again.

Thank you all for the kind words.

(apparently "preteen" is a censored word?)
