I don't know how many of you saw the ping I sent out earlier, but I'll repeat it here for those of you that don't get the chance to log into jabber any time soon:



Guys, it saddens me to be the one to announce this but today, our friend Gorl Abris (Chris Grassi) died of a heart attack.

I'm sure that all of our thoughts and prayers are with his family at this time.

Here is a copy and paste from his facebook page:


All - it is with great sadness that I share with you today that my brother Chris Grassi passed away tonight at the age of 45. We believe that it was from a heart attack, but do not have much details at this time. Please keep my family - especially my mother and sister in your thoughts and prayers at this time. I will make sure to pass along any details when they are finalized. Thanks to all for your thoughts, prayers, and condolences. Sincerely Tony Grassi

I know me and Gorl never really got along and I really wish we could of ended on better terms but that just never came. I never had any bitterness towards him but I wish I could've done more to of resolved the issues he had with me. as some of you all may know I am a religious person so I will keep him and his family in my prayers. May he rest in peace.

I've come to say 'words' many times... then saying nothing and returning again later hoping for the worst troll of all time. This sucks, and Gorl will be missed without a doubt. You're in my thoughts, may your families pain be brief and thier love be forever.

When I saw the ping this morning after getting up, I could not believe it at first, but now it is slowly sinking in and I am starting to tear up...

I've considered Gorl one of my closest friends in this game, whenever I came on Mumble he greeted me with a warm "Yakumooooooooooooo!". I will very much miss this, as well as his grumpy, gravelly voice. We talked about all kind of stuffs, every day, and hanging out with him was one of the main reasons why I came on Mumble.

He was one of the pillars of our community, not only for being always around, but also for his logi work and running Ponywaffe Free Radio.

When I last talked with him on Sunday, it was our usual banter and teasing him for some of his choices in music, a normal day and he did not show any signs of distress.

He has had problems with his heart for a long time and structured his life around that, fully aware that it would one day stop working. This day came now, far too soon.

The only weak consolidation I can find is that apparently he did not have to suffer for long.

My thoughts are very much with him and his family.

I'll miss him so much...

He was always there, one of the older bricks on the Ponywaffe wall. I don't know what to say.
I'll miss him.
