As many of you are aware, Gorl Abris sadly passed away during the night post a lengthy battle with his health. When I first saw the ping from Biz, I read with disbelief, only an hour previous I commented, "Has anyone seen Gorl today?", not knowing what was happening or the info I was about to receive.
Going back in History, I first met Gorl when i joined Ponywaffe some 15 months ago, it was a toss up between him & Wakko - who was the grumpiest on comms, but under the harsh exterior, he was a kind sweet man who deeply cared about us all. When I started out as Logi Director, I quickly harnessed Gorl's talents and he was a key member of the logi team, willing to do anything for anyone to help out. Myself and Gorl worked closely together, we spent hours emptying silo's, filling POS's, talking about ~Eve~, talking RL.
Gorl, was a kind devoted man and to him, ~Eve was real~. He cared, he cared deeply about not just Ponywaffe, but any organisation which he was apart. He constantly put 110% into everything, he will be deeply missed. Gorl was outspoken, he wasn't afraid to say what was on his mind but he was always thinking of everyone's best interest.
During his time in Eve, Gorl made many many friends to quote but a few;
Nature is (as gorl would say) a fucking nerd
RIP m8 o7
Gorl, we will eternally miss you. Those that of us that pray, will be praying for your family.
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.
Even though we'd never met, Gorl was my friend in every sense of the word.
Rest in peace my friend. We'll miss you terribly.
Gorl did not really like small gang PvP, he didn't like the dependence that was placed upon him but strat op, or in more recent times, cap op, he was there, flying the pwwn flag, making sure his pwwn bretheren were well.
Therefore, in Gorl's honor and in recognition of Gorl's lasting memory that will forever remain with us all;
- Battle Cyno Badgers!
- Friday 22nd March 2013, 22:00 Eve
The ride starts in C6Y (Delve), where we head out in Gorl's memory, 50 or more battle badgers, all named Gorl Abris, bring plenty of beer. Ships will be given out at the event.
Gorl, o7 m8, you'll forever be in our memories.
