Friends

This weekend a friend of mine was brutally murdered by a bunch of kids for no reason at all. He was a wonderful person, always happy and friendly, wouldn't hurt a fly. It's hard to understand something like this could happen to him, or anyone else for that matter. Over four hundred of his friends showed up at his memorial yesterday, which goes to show how deep he managed to touch people's hearts. It's really hard to get back to life the way it was before, I just can't stop thinking about what's happened.

So show your friends how much you appreciate them, you never know when someone will be snatched away forever. Life can be very cruel.

You don't know me but I really feel for you.

I can't imagine the pain you're going through.

Really, really sorry to hear this mate. I've had two of my really good friends die in the past year and I know how tough it can be to keep-on without their presence.

Keep strong bro!

The pain of a friend's death is one of the most hollowing and hardest to grip. Do whatever you need to do to stay well, cactman. Remember that if you need something, the world is listening.

sorry for the loss, he sounded like a great guy

It seems that you live in a rough town. You get beat up one week, and then your friend is beaten to death? We have nothing like that where I live.

My deepest condolences, man...
I don't know what to say right now =(

I'm so sorry to hear about your loss. Erik translated the DN article for me the day after it happened. Mind-bogglingly awful.

It's incredibly difficult to deal with the death of a friend, no matter the circumstances. It must be especially so when they are brutal and senseless. Stay strong is all I can say. And stay safe!


The store on the corner near our place in Lunden was robbed at knifepoint today, in broad daylight. Could possibly have been those same fuckers. I don't know what's going on with Gothenburg, but it's not good.

Really sorry to hear about this man...

I'm very sorry and hope time heals your sorrow soon.

It's hard to understand why there is so much senseless cruelty. How can we fight it? Empathy seems to decrease each day.

Sam said...

I am really sorry to hear this. I am fortunate to have not lost anyone really close to me, and I don't know what I'd do if I lost my best friend or my brother. I hope you can get past this, and I hope those responsible get what they deserve. And thanks for your positive words - You're right - We have to show our friends and family that we care, because we never know if we'll miss that chance.

My deepest condolences

I'm so sorry mate.

How dangerous is it where you live?
I can't imagine what my town would be like if kids walked around attacking eachother, and I dont want to imagine what It would be like if people were killing eachother. we do have two gangs (that hate eachother and have fought before, only once with guns. no one has ever died in one of the fight though) but they only show up to use our mall/movie theatre. Well, I'm really sorry that this had to happen to you. A friend dying or getting killed is one thing, but if it was for no reason it just adds a whole new factor of pain.

I am very sorry for your loss too... Do not let the pain paralyse you, though. I am sure he would want you to live happily even when he's gone, it will be the best you can do for him. At least, if I died, I wouldn't be happy if I changed somebody's life to the worse.

Do not be sad because you won't be able to be with your friend anymore - instead, be happy that you could meet him at all.

Conceit Arturo said...

I too dont know you, you dont know me...but I hope you can make sense out of this somehow...I dont know if I could. You're the most proficient gamedev I know of....use that to put that message in a game, tranform it to something with meaning....

Tidegear said...

I'm really sorry to hear this. We must never forget how important our actions are.

My condolences.. sounds like you cared very much for your friend.. I hope that they caught who was responsible and that they're put to justice

grenig said...

my brother knew the same people as your friend. we were gonna honor him at a concert last weekend by playing "no time for us". but similair circumtances got in the way... anyhow, i´m sorry for your loss. i dont get it. the few people that try to stay good and true are rewarded by what? suffering and death? as someone once said: if god exists he left this place a long time ago.
but that is still no reason to give up. the only way for evil to triumph is for good men to do nothing.

Gabriel said...

I love your games and by extension I love and respect you. Be well.

Eli said...

I feel in a similar respect to Gabriel above me.

I don't know you personally, but I think death is a transcendental experience - and more relatable (in many respects) than any other.

As such, I hope you can survive this intact, or even come out stronger. Be good.

Mexico City sounds like a real nice place to be. BEEP BEEP HERP DERP I HATE! I HATE! I HATE!

The following things also have no difference for me:

Life, death, monkeys, pepperoni pizzas, fourth-grade algebra, the theramin solo in "Whole Lotta Love", updrafts, round things, and Melissa from accounting.
