    Not quite sure what you're saying there chap... I can only suggest that if it perhaps isn't appropriate for a remembrance thread that you edit it.

    My way to say, as long as you are alive, you can always hope for a better tomorrow so don't give up.

    I only knew his mods and some of his posts. This is a very very sad thing to hear.

    I know, I keep checking the nice things people are saying and still thinking he's having a laugh like he always did with his strange sense of humor. We'll miss the dandy.

    My thoughts and prayers (spiritual as they are) go out to Alessandro's family.

    R.I.P Kid, you'll certainly be remembered as one of the forums finest in your time amongst us.


    His jouney's just begun

    "Don't think of him as gone away
    his journey's just begun,
    life holds so many facets
    this earth is only one.

    Just think of him as resting
    from the sorrows and the tears
    in a place of warmth and comfort
    where there are no days and years.

    Think how he must be wishing
    that we could know today
    how nothing but our sadness
    can really pass away.

    And think of him as living
    in the hearts of those he touched...
    for nothing loved is ever lost
    and he was loved so much."

    Ellen Brenneman



    Mod on wherever you are fella...

    Totally shocked. I have been so wrapped up in my own shizzle lately that I have just seen this. Very sad indeed. I can't claim to know Alessandro personally, but I have had a few interactions on here with him. He always struck me as such a wise head on young shoulders. I'm sure he'll be missed by many not only on here but in real life too.

    If anyone feels this way, please, please speak to the community about it. Many of us have similar interests and lifestyles, and can relate to your pain. I am sure that at least 70% of this very community have had similar thoughts at one time or another. I know I have, on numerous occasions. Talking does help, and talking to people outside your real life social circle helps immensely.

    RIP Alessandro. You will be missed.

    Huh. Well this is out of the blue.

    As others have said, Kidmod always seemed to be quite upbeat. Wasn't he getting ready to go to uni or something?

    My condolences to his family.

    Kid has departed,

    Our joy diminished.

    This exactly. I clicked on the thread thinking he had left the forum, and then saw the first sentence. Makes your stomach churn from the shock.

    RIP Kid


    Edit: Just read his last post. Makes you wish you could have known how bad his situation was and tried to help.

    i honestly thought it was some kind of a joke at first, like most on here i didn't know him personally but he always seemed so positive and was passionate about his hobbies, it hurts to see someone so young end his life :(

    R.I.P. Kid

    this really made me tear up as i went though depression in my teens and was close to ending it all, i never talked to anyone about it either and tbh i don't remember what helped me but i'm glad to be alive.

    First time back on the forum in a few days and I see this. I haven't posted much since he's been a member, but always enjoyed reading his posts. It always felt like he was the kind of member who made this forum what it is. Having suffered from depression personally, news like this always seems to hit me hard. He was so young, and bit-tech will never get to enjoy his spamming again. My thoughts are with his family at this difficult time. I may be a poor student, but can't think of a better cause than Mind, so will be donating in his honour, in the hope that bit-tech's small contribution can help at least one person who finds themselves in a similar situation.

    RIP kidmod, you will be missed.

    Damn, I've just come back.

    R.I.P man, may the mod gods smile upon thee and may he rest in a sea of amazing hardware. I'll be sure to toast and light up a special cigar.

    RIP KidMaw.
    So shocked and sad to hear of this. Condolences to the family.

    For anyone that has lost someone, this is such a beautiful poem. Made me cry at work. Truly thankful that you posted it.
