    Hi all:

    I have the sad duty to report that Terra22 (Eric) passed away today. I just confirmed it through two mutual friends back in the Boston area. Eric and I met off RealJock back in 2009. And we dated for a little bit. While I don't have all of the details, I did my research to make sure it was a true to ensure I wasn't posting something that wasn't true. I was really hoping it was a rumor but sadly, it is not.

    While Eric and I only dated briefly, I remember and appreciated the laughter and fun he brought into my life in that brief time. We met off RealJock; and our first date was Valentine's Day 2009. We had a mutual love for Family Guy. After our first date, we saw each other every single night afterwards. He was my RealJock crush for the LONGEST time and when I finally scored a date with him, I was so excited.

    After our breakup, he wrote a not so nice post about it and while I disagreed with the facts, I never felt any animosity or disdain for him. I kept the pictures we took because they reminded me of the good times. I hate that we never got to make things right and be friends after. This is a lesson, even for myself, that life is short and grudges and disagreements take away from the happiness that we can have within ourselves and between each other.

    I am so sorry to be the bearer of bad news. I ask that regardless of our interactions with Eric, that we leave happy memories or thoughts and kind words. Thank you.

    Rest in peace, Eric.

    -L

    I honestly don't know but I definitely confirmed it through two (and now, three) mutual friends. He and I dated briefly back in 2009 after we met off RealJock on a Valentine's Day date. As I said--I don't have all the details but I do know that its true and...it sucks because I wish I was wrong. icon_cry.gif

    It just happened today. If you message me privately, I'll be able to provide more details in regards to anything online. He still deserves--and I still want to protect--his privacy but at the same time, I'm sure he made plenty of friends on here and just wanted to share the news.

    Very sad. Not surprising given some of his history here, but very sad.

    I agree, it is very sad, but he really did have a troubled past, if memory serves me right.

    Let's leave speculation and cause out of this. We haven't confirmed any of those things. Let's not talk about how we died but how he lived. Whatever the cause or his past may be, he was still a very kind and good-hearted person and meant well, the way I remember him--the way we all should.
