Brandon Wayne, :iconinuyashafan122
: someone some of you might know as Ryu from our RPs has passed away. A mutual friend of ours, Raven aka Kiki got in contact with me on Facebook and told me the bad news. I am sadly not too knowledgeable on the circumstances, but he was apparently sick for a while before his passing.
While looking at Brandon's FB page he had written about going to the emergency room, a post I had completely miss due to my spotty online status. I am hardly ever on facebook or even here. I usually spend the day looking up gaming news and stuff for Pokémon or playing Pokémon. I regret not having been able to talk to Brandon more before his passing.
Sure we had our arguments, our agreements and our moments I don't really like to think or talk about, but still Brandon has a special place in my RP history. It was Brandon who actually helped me cut my teeth on rping, we had met in an AOL chat room back in 2003 and from then on up until 2006 we were regular rp buddies. Over the years since we lost contact, got back into contact and what not but it was never like it was back in the AOL days. Earlier last year I had gotten back in contact with him Via skype and I sadly think we've only talked for more than an hour on 5 separate occasions outside of his and hellos and how are you doing.
This is a lesson that we never know how long we have, especially with those we know. I remember not that long ago we were skyping and bsing about power rangers and how he wanted the DVD set in the shape of the Red Ranger's helmet so badly.
Brandon, while I don't know if you ever got your DVD set or got to watch the 20 years worth of power rangers on it, I hope you find peace and maybe get to hook up with Thuy Trang aka Trini the yellow ranger up in heaven. I will miss you my RP brother, and so will Yami. We love you man.
