Flowers for the Family of weid man

A lot of us in FE (Faded Enigma) and GT alike have been really hurt by the loss of our beloved weid man. Some of us over there wanted to get a floral arrangement for his family to be delivered to their house. It took a long talk of what exactly to send but we had decided on GT colors (blue and yellow).

However we just hit the realization that the flowers would only be from us at FE and since GT was really the birthplace of all of our connections, we wanted to bring all of GT in on this so that it's from the entire website as a whole. We weren't sure if anyone wanted to contribute anything from here. Sprays can be somewhat costly but I'm sure we can give his family something really nice if we all pitch in. We have yet to figure out how we are going to collect the money or what the exact arrangement will be (still researching so if you want to help in that we'd appreciate it). But we are floating the idea over here to see what others think.

Sorry, I'm dirt poor, but it's a beautiful idea.

That's fine. It's still going to be from "The GT Family" so you won't be left out either way.

Nearly any person that has used any form of gametalk at all has had interactions with Weid man, whether good or bad. People held many opinions of him throughout the years, both good and bad. He could be the most annoying person on the planet, or the most helpful, but he always had good intentions. As someone who was fairly close to Weid, I experienced both the best and the worst of him, but he was a great person that was struggling through something that I don’t think any one of us could even come close to understanding. Weid was always supportive of everyone and loved to make people laugh. Right up to the very end, gametalk still very much was his life. Although I had known for many years that this day would be coming very soon, I still struggle to find the words of what exactly this all means to me. Whatever we decide to do, I will gladly be a part of any sort of memorial/dedication that is put together to help support his family in these tough times.

You have my bow.


Yes I will donate. I am a spazz with technology but if you can provide me a way to do it I will chip in some money.

Have his parents released any funeral information?

I am in contact with his mom and she said currently they are figuring it out. We wanted to have it delivered for his funeral but it might be more practical to have it delivered to their house instead.

I'll donate too if there's a crowdfund for flowers. I'll try to remember to check back with this post later.

I'd like to see artwork of a red Yoshi included in there somehow; it would make the whole thing that much more special.

There should be a way of letting us all sign or add a personal note or something -- that way we can all contribute even if we can't contribute financially (I'm probably more broke than feral at the moment).

I also added this post up top. Probably not necessary since we get like 3 posts per day but still.

Yeah we were wanting to do something Yoshi related. If I was picking it up myself I would do it but I don't know if it can be requested by flower places.

We did at least have a red Yoshi smash day yesterday for like an hour to honor Garrett.

I was thinking about doing something like that and compiling a document of everyone's quote. I can give that to his parents myself (I will be attending the funeral).
