Bearer of bad news...

Discussion in 'Off Topic [BG]' started by Eric Cameron, Oct 22, 2002.

  1. It is my sad duty to report that we are about to loose one of our own. Charles Cole, known here for a short while as Shanaenae, was hit by a truck while walking home from school yesterday. He went into a coma and has not recovered, and the doctors think that there is too much brain damage for him to pull through. They expect him to last another 48 hours, no longer.

    For his wonderful family, for his friends, for his school, and for the bass playing community, I ask for a moment of silence from all of you. A great person and a great player is passing.


    Rock on, Charles

    I dunno what to say I truly am speechless, even though I have never spoken to this person or heard of him, it hit hard, it feels like a brother is gone. My condolences to his family. I guess this shows how fragile life can be:( A truly terrible loss. You and your family will be in my prayers tonight. Sincerely,
    James Tippets
  4. I never knew him, but the death of an innocent is always a sad occasion. Deepest sympathies to his loved ones...

  5. I never knew him but it still saddens me. My heart goes out to him and anyone that knew him in any way (more paticular his family).

    I somethimes wonder what would happen if anything real bad (like this) happened to someone here in TB and we would never ever notice :(

    maybe we should do some kind of list with the emails of relatives of the interested members (sister, etc) so we could email them after some months of member inactivity (and when the last post is not a "hey im going to take a long vacation")

    that list should be on hands of two moderators/members and/or the admin...

    anyways, that is a sad new i guess (never knew him too)

    wow, my prayers go out to all close to him. and dave, i've often wondered about that too. i've been afraid that if something happened to me, all of my friends that i talk to online, but live far away would have no idea what happened. i'd just disappear. scary

    I went and read some of Charles' posts, and this is what he wrote about 2 weeks ago :(


    Yea, I gotta give my word for Justin, too. There's been like for four critical football accidents, all in the same time period. I'm glad I have no life, otherwise i would get hurt.


    P.S. I know eric, he goes to my youth group

    P.S.S. the concert is a great idea. I would help out, but my band and I, well, we "lack crucial experience".
