    In Memory of Yenz

    Well guys, I never thought I'd be doing this on BCG. This is deadly serious.

    This afternoon I got a call from one of Yenz's real life friends, he was going through Yenz's phone ringing the numbers. He asked me if I was "Shug", and he told me that this morning Yenz hadn't woken up. They don't know what's happened yet but they think he might have had a weak heart and it gave out when he was asleep.

    He was only a few short months younger than me... I'll remember Yenz (Rhys) as a gentle guy, with a quirky sense of humour... that got taken too early.

    RIP Yenz

    I'll post again in this thread when I hear more from his friends...

    I will sticky this thread for a bit. - BA

    Yenz was an intelligent, artistic and loyal individual, as well as one of my friends. I will never forget him.

    I am so sorry .
    Yenz was an awesome person. It shouldn't be like this. This is unfair. He was so young.

    My deepest condolances to his family, friends.

    utterly speakless here.

    Such a tragic waste of human life, Yenz was a promising individual with a bright future someone who was not afriad to express himself and his view on life and its complexities. It always strikes home hard when you hear of a young person die, let alone someone that you knew, even only via internet. Makes you feel your own mortallity and that of those you are close to, how fragile life is and how lucky we are to have it.

    Unhappy Oh... I don't know what to say...

    This must have happened only a few days ago? He last browsed the forums 15.th of May according to his profile. Atleast he died in his sleep, hopefully without any pain, while dreaming.

    I've added a R.I.P. title in his profile, I can't do much more than that and give my deepest condolances to everyone that knew him.

    What a sad day.

    no no!... this aint happening! I will never forget yenzarill, a very nice guy and funny aswell..

    like I were saying to the rest of the mockers, things like this is what make life sucks, I (and also many others) know how it feels to lose someone you know, even family and loved ones! so I hope it is like ppl say, that life is hell, so when ppl die, they really come to heaven and all that! so in other words, yenz did leave us here and are now in a much better place! but is unfair though, he left to soon he were to young man. RIP yenzarill, I'll never forget you //Louie

    I remember playing with Yenz a few times, and I recall him being a good player. I really enjoyed his posts and his dark sense of humour on these forums, it's sad to lose an unique person like him

    My condolences to all of you who knew him.

    Jesus. So sorry to hear this.

    He was a great fella, with a sharp sence of humour that could match anyones here, and always enjoyed to play by his side.

    My thoughts are with his family and friends, and also, his friends in Mockers.

    Rest in peace, Yenz.

    Since being told by Shug this morning, this has really saddened me, I played with Yenz far more during the early days of TUT, he was allways somebody who would not get involved in arguments, and always had the best to say about people. It puts things in perspective.

    Its unfair he's not now got the chance to live a life as long as the rest of us, but I don't feel sorry for him, he's become what we all will one day become, and fullfiled a dream I have, a peaceful crossing during the night.

    My thoughts are with his family and his close friends, for they have lost an extremely talented and bright young man.

    We say that the hour of death cannot be forecast, but when we say this we imagine that hour as placed in an obscure and distant future. It never occurs to us that it has any connection with the day already begun or that death could arrive this same afternoon, this afternoon which is so certain and which has every hour filled in advance. ~Marcel Proust

    He's not resting.

    I checked out his site and he had just gotten a tatoo that he designed himself. Plus he thought a lot about his own existence then stated that he wanted to be cubed and fed to catfish after he died. Curious thought.

    I hardly knew him, but the message of death is so shocking.
    This is so unreal.
    News like this allways make me sad

    Thanks guys... I was almost crying at work and now I'm really fucking crying. I got another call from his mate Henry while I was the pub tonight, those fellas are organizing a gathering in a day or so and he's putting a brave face on things... but they're all bloody upset. The autopsy will be on monday, they think maybe it was a blood clot.

    I was quite close to Yenz, it's only just really sinking in... I think if I learnt anything from yenz himself it's that even if you're a giant, be it physical or mental, you don't need to flex your power just to serve yourself. And I think he was both a physical and mental giant.

    For those that didn't know him very well... please have a look at his site, www.yenzarill.net which has been linked to a couple of times. He had a very amazing brain.

    When I last spoke to Yenz he'd just had a tattoo done, I think there are pictures on his site... but also, more importantly, he'd finally charmed a lady and was dating her... and then this. Henry said to me that he'd done most of the things he'd wanted to achieve in life... but it was just starting. And it must have been his mother or sister that found him in the morning... just terrible.

    Rest in peace Yenz

    Egad. This is bad news.

    I really like his website. Here's a quote from it:

    Some people find that depressing, but I don't see how it is. I'm going to have fun, then die. Where's the problem?
    I'm sorry for you, Yenz.
