We are the Vulcan Kolinahr Fleet - we are mates - we are a team and we have lost one of our own.
Most of us haven't met in RL, but in this world of Star Trek which we all share a love for, we have a bond. Without meeting Weed743, we already know something near and dear to his heart because we share it - the love of this ST universe is near and dear to us too or we wouldn't be here. We know what it has been like to grow up a Trekkie or a Trekker. We share that with Weed743. We know how much fun he had with this fleet and this game at the end of his days because it was the same fun we were sharing and a part of. Feel something real for this real man whom we have lost from our virtual world.
Come to Vulcan to be with us at 4pm EST in the US so that we might honor his passing at the same time as his funeral is being held in Australia.
I really regret that , with me moving this week and my new internet connection not being installed till saturday that i wont be able to join my friends on our homeworld, but as i said at that time i will raise a glass of scotch to our fallen friend in the tradition of my family,My family does not really morn fallen friends we celebrate thier lives and hope thay rest in peace.
I have been taking lessons on Scottish heritage from Daho and Weed743's brother. Accordingly, I will say a few words at the service in celebration of his life, rather than mourning for his death. I know our Fleet feels sadness for the sudden and unexpected loss to his family (Weed743 died in fall after an accidental electrocution), but all have been gladdened by his zest for life while he was among us. If there is an afterlfe, Weed743 is level 50 already!
