In memory of le Carre/Plubius/Kevin

For those of you that haven't read the various announcements...

About a week ago, le Carre went into surgery, to remove a blood clot from his brain that was left there from a prior surgery.

We got an announcement in the mod forum from one of his family members saying that he did not do too well. We offered our support, and I put up a global announcement about it.

A few days after that, he died, and his family alterted that to us as well.

I got an IM from his brother a little while after that. Apparently le Carre had left behind a notebook with a lot of passwords and notes about his internet life, which was how his family was able to contact us.

I have talked with his brother, his brother's wife, and their young but very mature daughter. He and his family went through a lot of trouble to talk to people who are basically strangers that he's never met, so I feel we owe them something in return.

Even if you didn't personally know le Carre, try to leave behind something for his family to see. If they don't explicitly visit this post I will email it to them.

I'm so bad at these sorts of things...

I always want to offer condolences, but fail miserably at being comforting. All I can say is, I'm very sorry for your loss. I did not know le Carre himself, but I know what it's like to lose a family member.

He won't be forgotten. That is the best I can do for you. I'm sorry I can't help more.

Le Carre was always willing to help out and to talk to people here as he saw fit. weather it be a simple question or a very emotional, post, he always seemed to bring a positive attitude to the table.

He was a great person to talk to and he truly will be missed. My thoughts are with the family and other loved ones of Le Carre.

RIP

From what I know about le Carre/Kevin...

He ran a site called thegamelands as well as a site called gamesnmore. I had been looking for thegamelands because I was trying to make contacts with all the admins of sites that went up after GT went down, but I gave up on that site. One day, Kevin contacted me. He asked to be made a moderator, but I was so impressed with his work on those sites (plus I had a policy) that I made him an admin.

We talked over AIM frequently. I considered him a friend. We weren't the greatest of friends, but we had a lot of things in common despite a 20 year age gap. Like me, he was into writing and computer science and we discussed those in some detail.

One day he contacted me about building a website for him as a continuation of his last two sites. I'm still working on that site, and I plan to finish it some day soon so his friends will still have a place to talk. I think his character really shined through with it.. originally he was going to have a payment plan of 50$/week, but out of the blue he forwarded me 150$ and a vBulletin subscription. He trusted me, despite barely knowing me. I think that shows a lot about who he was.

As an admin of GTX0, we had many disagreements. He didn't like a lot of my policies, and I didn't like a lot of how he ran things. However, he was VERY loyal to GTX0 and helped out a lot backstage, like on the last mod hiring. I remember he wanted to talk to a lawyer about the whole Daniel fiasco. While I disagreed with him about that (and the situation was eventually resolved), that shows a lot about his loyalty to this site. I am glad I could let him help run GT, and very glad that I could work with him.

So, in conclusion, in the kind of blunt honesty he preferred, he wasn't perfect in any area, but I'm glad to have known him.

R.I.P. Kevin, you will be missed.

I'm glad to have known him too and, as far as disagreements go, we started out on disagreements. Well, clashes sounds more like it.

I would like to offer my condolences to his family, although at the moment I'm dealing with my own grief, so I have little comfort to offer.

Fare you well Kevin. May you find out that I was wrong all along and that God does exist.

He was always willing to help, he even offered help to the writing forum in wanting to create a contest. No matter the age of the person, a loss of a life is never easy to accept and I hope and pray that his family is handling this as best as they can.

Le Carre, even though I didn't know you past reading a few posts you were in, you will remain in my, and probably everyone's memories. Especially since (to the best of my knowledge) you were from the orginal GT, which makes you sort of like a cousin or something in that respect.


R.I.P. And whether or not, I shall add you into the book I'm currently writing, as the coolest, most awesome character in existance.

I never got the chance to get to know Le Carre personally, but it breaks my heart to hear this news. We here at gtx0 are like family, at least I think so, and we mourn the passing of our friend and brother.

RIP LE CARRE/KEVIN

My heart goes out to his family and I must say that him leaving behind all that stuff about his internet life seems like something from a book or movie. I'm glad that he did this so that his family could know how loved this man was by people who are from around the country and possibly the world. Le Carre your memory shall forever be etched into our hearts.

I cannot say that I knew Le Carre long. We had only started becoming friends a few weeks before his passing. Yet, I am honored to have known him for the time that I did. He was kind and very much a gentlemen. He will be very deeply missed. My thoughts and prayers go out to Le Carre's family.

Do not stand at my grave and weep:
I am not there.
I do not sleep.
I am the thousand winds that blow.
I am the diamond glints on snow.
I am the sunlight on ripened grain.
I am the gentle autumn rain.
When you awaken in the morning's hush,
I am the swift uplifting rush.
Of quiet birds in circled flight,
I am the soft stars that shine at night.
Do not stand at my grave and cry:
I am not there.
I did not die.

RIP Kevin

I hadn't really spoken with le Carre, but it is always painful when someone passes away.

I thank the family for sharing this with us because at least we can have some sort of closure, rather than always wondering what happened.

I never had the pleasure of knowing La Carre, but any death is a sad one. I have known many people who passed on, including a young woman murdered over drugs, and it is never remotly easy, but to die because of someone elses neglect where they are suppose to be licenced professionals is simply inexcusable.

I hope his family gets justice for this outrage.

Life can be an obstacle course at times. Life will throw roadblocks, and you have to manage to get pass them. Death is a roadblock.

Everybody has to deal with death. Last year, I lost my best friend due to an automobile accident. He was only 17. The school didn't really give two shits about it, but I raised money the hard way to get him a headstone. That way, he shall always be remembered, even by anybody who didn't know him.

What I'm trying to say is that this may be a hard time for Kevin's family, but they all have to stay strong. Also, even if we didn't have the pleasure to know him, we should carry out his memory in this website. After learning how big of a contributor he was in the formation of this site, we owe him thanks.

It's truly a damn shame that he had to go out like that. May he rest in peace.

I never had the pleasure of meeting or even talking with Le Carre, but from what I have read I can see he was a wonderful person. I know what it is like to lose a loved one, and I know that it is one of the most painful things you can go through. This is going to sound corny as hell, but here goes. Although he has passed on, he will always live in the hearts of those who loved him. Death is not the end, and he will be waiting for all those who are mourning him. I am deeply sorry for your loss. You will be in my prayers.

And you guys truly believed he died?

Unless you knew the guy personally i'll not trust it. If I am wrong and he is dead all I can do is cheer because he finally gets his turn. Wherever he went or believed in I hope he has it now. Guess we gotta keep looking. How about you offer a thread that talks about how tragic we all are for being forced into a lifetime inside a vessel we despise. A vessel doomed to grow old because of the trick of time. Why do we go out of our way to send blessings to the dead when they are the lucky ones. Not us.

Talen, you're contradicting yourself. you say you don't believe in his passing because you have no airtight evidence/proof, yet you talk about the dead being the lucky ones as though it is a fact. What proof have you of that?

Life is exceedingly hard. That is what I have learned. The gift of life though is that you have time to do so much on this planet. Even if you see life as being Hell on Earth, there is proof around you that joy (brief though it may seem) is attainable. You have to work oh so hard for it, but it is there.

I used to be very depressive, blaming my gaping wounds on the world around me and cursing life itself. For years I was like that. But I knew that I could never intentionally leave those who love me behind. So I worked hard on improving my life and I can honestly say it is all worth it.

Besides, harder times can help you appreciate the better ones in ways you may never have dreamed. I mean, how can you know how delicious a certain food is if you've never tasted bad food? If you ate only filet mignon your whole life, would it taste as good to you as it would to a person for whom it was not commonplace?

Look, you're trying to cover your butt, but

"If I am wrong"

had nothing to do with

"Why do we go out of our way to send blessings to the dead when they are the lucky ones. Not us."

As you can plainly see, it was part of

"If I am wrong and he is dead all I can do is cheer because he finally gets his turn."

and had nothing to do with the second half of the second sentence in my above reply, which I will quote for clarification:

"you say you don't believe in his passing because you have no airtight evidence/proof, yet you talk about the dead being the lucky ones as though it is a fact."

You are making a debate over nothing. Your emotions are getting in the way and you make yourself look retarded. As I said before I don't trust anyone to know for sure if he is dead or not but if he is why are we being sad about it? Hes the lucky one. Now if you'll excuse me I got other fish to fry.

For a guy who claims to be non-religious, you have some morbid opinions you seem to think applies to us all. I, for one, happen to enjoy my life, no matter how insignifcant in the scheme of the universe. I am not going to throw my own religion on you, but I know where I am going when my time on Earth is up, and I am ready whenever my plug is pulled. But untill then, I plan to enjoy this life and everything that comes with it.

He lays alone in the black abyss

On his lips he feels that final kiss,

His heart feels crushed and his stomach aches

This pain cannot be described.

Every waking moment spent in pure agony.

There is nothing like that first step off of the

train,

The wind is chilled from the early morning,

The warmth of your lovers embrace,

But these moments, as beautiful as they are now..

They are evil when they are gone.
