    My condolences to his family and his friends, which includes all of us. We are all diminished.

    I can't say I'm in shock because I had the same eerie feeling Antithetik did the last day or two.

    It was at the very end of his active time here that I "met" our old bear. I wish I could have got to know him better, but I'm immensely grateful to have known him the little I did.

    He had a long fight and I'm sure, knowing WC, it wasn't an easy one. We hate to lose you but I hope you're at peace now. You touched the lives of more people than you probably ever realized. You have been in my prayers for quite some time now and your family will continue to be.

    You will be missed greatly!

    With humour and warmth he touched many.
    His generosity, easygoing friendship and advice are a big part of what makes this place so special.
    He also knew when to kick in a door.:)

    I never had the pleasure of having a direct interaction with Warchild, but could tell by his postings and the way that others spoke of him, he was a great man and someone very special. My thoughts, prayers, and condolences going out to his family and friends. You will be missed!

    Thought I'd change my avatar for a few days to help folks around here know about our friend Warchild. Also, I just spent a while cracking up looking at polar bear memes, including several the guys around here used to tease Warchild.

    I had that dreadful feeling this was coming but i didnt want to believe it , without Warchild this place will never be the same . We never got to see Warchild respond to his annual polar bear cake and birthday wishes , may there be plentiful EDC shops up above brother ........:angel:

    we need a black banner for one of our fallen brothers in support

    Just my view and if I'm in the minority I'll shut up, but I don't like the idea of taking on essentially his avatar

    Nice idea, but I don't think we need that to remember him

    I'll really miss you wc and it was an honor to get to know you and your family. You are a great man and I'm glad you're not sick anymore and stuck. My prayers to you and your family and I'll always think of you when I see a polar bear and through your kind gestures and comments.

    For me, and maybe this is worse because I knew him some personally off the forums**, not just on them, but the polar bear avatars are a kick in the gut, a reminder that he is indeed Not here when I see that it isn't him posting and I'm reminded each time that he can't post anymore...

    Its a bad reminder, Not a good one.

    my $0.02 anyway.
    No offence intended. :)

    EDIT to add;

    **not meaning to insinuate you or anyone else didn't, or say I'm more important... just meaning I'm a bit sensitive about this right now, maybe more emotional about it than some are. Again, no slight or offence intended. :)

    And as Cheeser said, if this view is in the minority, by all means I'll shut up as well... All have rights to remember him, in their own ways, I deffinetally don't want to limit anyones rememberance of a great man. :)

    Uuugh without right words here atm. But what I write here comes from my heart. warchild and your family it deeply saddens me to hear about your loss and battle. I knew you as a fighter and a kind spirit. With a hugh soft heart beating within you. I hope you can be in a better place now and hope the impression you left too all who you encountered will always be remembered and stay as positive energy active in our lives!

    My deepest condolences to your family and I wish and hope they will have many warchild-like people dear that can be an ear and a shoulder towards your loved ones.

    Saying goodbye with a tear here.

    warchild was so kind, friendly and giving... terrible news :unsure:

    I will miss him. I'm going to carry the flipper he sent me for a bit.

    What a guy - He has moved on to a better plane of existence.

    Peace, my friend. Return to the earth and be one again.

    You will be missed.
