Yes indeed

And I didn't think of him as old at all. He seemed young and playful.

I hope this is not too off topic, as this is a thread for Fatbrit.

His death has really brought it home to me that all you people out there are.... well...people. Its so easy to..... well you never stop knowing you are dealing with people, but it is easy to forget that they are people with feelings, and not just pixels of avatars, that even though we just communicate with type, that we are making connections. I am getting to the time in life when people around one do start to die, and I had never thought about that being online too. It just seems like a new aspect of life that I am not sure I am prepared for. I never quite understand my nephew who talks about his girlfriend online whom he has never met, but maybe I am getting a bit closer, as our relationships with people get more and more diverse, even with my parents, I know them as much online now as anything.

I think I am inarticulately trying to say that I am surprised that I am touched by the death of someone I have never met, but that I really should not be surprised, as he made his generosity of spirit clear with his words.

I think you have expressed it beautifully, I was not prepared for the sense of loss I would feel about a cyber friend.

I have no idea what sort of music FB liked to listen to, but from what little I learned of his earlier life in the UK, plus his online persona, this always made me think of him.

Very touching and so true it upset me too.. and I know some of us may clash with our thoughts and ideas, but it does not mean we don't care about the well being of each other and would go that extra mile to help them in anyway!

Although we clashed in cyberspace no one is immune from feeling great sadness at this time. May he rest in peace knowing he contributed to the amusement and gave assistance to, a great deal of people he would never meet. A Truebrit in every sense. Condolences to his family now knowing he is out of pain and resting peacfully.

Wow! I am so sorry to hear of Fatbrits passing I have missed so much this last few weeks. His family and friends are in my thoughts.

He sent me such a sweet message after Matthew passed, I appreciated that so much. RIP old friend!

As dorky as it sounds, but with a spare few pots lying around, the girls planted a few pink scrubs in your honour, FB.

Yee oh pinko, should get a kick out of that
