Sad News for Fans of the Brotherhood of Groove

  1. hey all,

    if anyone is into the BOG, I just found out that Tomato, our friend, fan, and hardcore road dog, has shuffled off this mortal coil.

    he was a great dude with the sweetest nature, the quickest smile, and the first one to offer you a kind word.

    he will be deeply missed by all who knew him.

    from the deepest lows,

    Stew
     
  2. Damn, my condolences. :(
     
  3. Sincere condolences, Stew.
     
  4. thanks, guys. the weirdest part is that he isn't -- wasn't -- even 30 years old. there's something so wrong with that.

    why don't things like this happen to bad people?

    from the lows,

    Stew

    Really sorry to hear about your loss Stew, and the loss of many actually. While I never had the pleasure, Im sure from the company he kept he was top knotch in every way.

    May his journey be easy...
     
  6. thanks, Dave. that's very kind. Tomato (his real name was Mike, but I don't know anyone who used it) was just too cool notto be around anymore. it's so weird. he was just a kid, y'know?

    from the lows,

    RIP, 'mater.
     
  8. Condolences Stew.
     
  9. thanks, cats. it's been weird since I got the news, but it's great knowing that there are decent people around. in times like this it's very comforting.

    from the lows,

  10. so here's the official word:

    cause of death for the 28 year old was a heart attack.

    can you believe that?!? what kind of insanity is that?!?

    :( :crying:

    I miss the 'Mater...
