Dear LPSG'ers, My name is Brian. You may all know me as Chris' boyfriend. I would like to start this out by saying thanks for being so inviting to Chris. He really did enjoy his time here, and saw this place as a sanctuary in which he could have serious conversations with people. That being said, it is with great dissapointment to let you guys know that Joe or "Chris", as most of you kow him, has passed away. Joe was on his way over to my place, when a drunk driver ran him over. It is believed that the driver was going 85 MPH in a 30 MPH zone. I know most of you really liked his open mindness and down to earth attitude. He was a man who did not judge on the lifestyle a person was living. He really did love all human kind. He was a great man who will not be able to accomplish his dreams because of some drunk. His dream was to one day own his own chocolate bussines because he loved to work with chocolate. He did not pass instantly, which was a miracle in itself. He was unconcious for a couple of hours. When he came to, he was able to speak - but struggled. He knew he was going to die, and one of the things he told me was that he wanted to thank all of you on this board - specially those who helped him through the rough time of him finding his sexuality. There is one person in particular that he wanted to thank, but I will speak with that person online later. I have taken the liberty of deleting all of his photographs, for obvious reasons. His avatar will remain for a while, but I plan on deleting it by the end of this week - I do hope that you all understand why I have decided to do this. I ask of you to have a moment of silence to yourselves when you read this post, in remembrance of Joe. Thank you all for your time, and thank you for sharing your hospitality with him.
