R.I.P. KidMod-Southpaw

It is with great sadness and a very heavy heart that I have to inform the community of the passing away of KidMod-Southpaw (Alessandro). We received word from his grandfather that on the night of Tuesday 9th September Alessandro took his own life. Whilst it might be difficult to hear this, David would like it to be public knowledge in order to urge others in a similar position to seek help and perhaps stop others that may be contemplating a similar thing.

I am sure that I am speaking for everyone when I say that he will be greatly missed and fondly remembered.

Update

Some members have expressed an interest in making a donation towards a wreath for Kid's funeral. I have heard from Kid's grandfather and he would prefer that, instead of contributing towards a wreath for the funeral, donations were made towards a mental health charity as, in David's words, "perhaps then others may not allow themselves to reach such a stage of desperation if they felt able to express their thoughts".

As such I have set up a JustGiving page in Kid's memory at

https://www.justgiving.com/kidmod

in support of Mind - The Mental Health Charity. I know that they are a fantastic charity who do amazing work with people with a range of mental health problems and, in their own words, are here to make sure no one has to face a mental health problem alone.

George

Update

Dear all,

I received this from Alessandro's grandfather today - certainly Kid and his family have been in my thoughts a lot recently but will be even more so on Monday

Quote:
Dear George,

We now have the arrangements for Alessandro's funeral - Monday the 22nd of Sept at 1.45pm at St Marie's Church, Standish followed by a cremation at Charnock Richard Crematorium at 3pm.

We are all most deeply touched by all the condolences from the forum members, I know Alessandro would be most happy to have so many of his friends' comments, just a pity he was in such a dark place at the time, again many thanks for your kind words and also for the donations to Mind from the forum members.

David
Thanks

George

I'm very sorry to hear that. It's such a sad loss of a great forum member, and a terrible waste of a life full of possibilities.

That was not what I expected to be seeing this morning and to be honest has knocked me a bit. I'm so sorry to hear this unfortunate news and if anyone knows of him personally I would be grateful if you could pass my condolences on to his family. I'm not sure what else to say.

Tragic news.

R.I.P Kidmod. You will be missed.

Is there anyway one of the mods or Bit-tech could set up a PayPal account or something, somewhere we could donate so that as a forum we could send a wreath to the funeral?

Christ, this is a horrible shock. Would never have guessed from his posts, he seemed so cheery most of the time.

Here's to you mate, RIP.

This genuinely stopped me in my tracks. I didn't really know him really but I always got the impression that he was full of positive energy. My condolences to his family, and if anyone is in a similar position - I've been there before, and I'd be willing to lend a discrete, non-judgemental ear.
