    I don't know if you guys remember Venom71, but he and I used to tussle a bit about SR and casting and stuff but we later became IM buddies.

    I had been IMing with him for about a year and a half, I believe, but recently I hadn't seen him much. When I thought about it and realized I hadn't seen him at all recently, I was worried about him because his health was so bad so I searched on his local paper's web site.

    He died about a month ago.

    I'm very sad....

    Brad Kelley liked to "stir the pot" over on the SR forums, as he put it, and he did it a lot so I'm not sure he had many friends here but at heart he was a kind soul.

    He had a tough life because of his health problems and had anyone else been in his shoes, I'm sure they would have been bitter. Yet he was sweet and loved deeply.

    I'm going to miss him.

    Rest in Peace, dear Brad.

    Wow, that's a shame. I didn't know Venom71, but from what I saw of his posts, he seemed to be a nice guy, and a very positive voice on the boards. RIP.

    It sucks when long time posters leave, but sucks even more when you know they are not coming back. R.I.P Brad. :csad:

    I remember him posting about the medical problems he was having. Seemed like a good guy, all in all. RIP, Brad.

    I bumped into his posts once in a while and always recognized him by his avatar.

    Sad to hear it.

    I didn't know him but it's very sad to hear of someone here confirmed to be no longer with us. If any of the people I know on here stop posting permanently there'd be no way of me knowing whether they're ok in real life or not. :(

    It is sad. Makes me think how important it is to show kindness to others. It should never be put off for tomorrow may never come.

    Holy ****. This really kinda bums me out.

    I rememeber someone making a post about his health not too long ago, and he was in perfect working order. He was pretty damn happy too, for the most part.

    This is why a lot of you emo bastards piss me the **** off. "Oh, life is so hard! Waa! I don't have the right colour car! I wish I was dead!". V71 wanted to live, and yet was taken from us, yet you sons of *****es want to end yourself over something trivial. It sucks that the people who value life the most rarely get the chance to live a long one. :(
