This was my little sister's fiancee. I really don't have much to say.

I'm not going to be around Neowin much for awhile. My little sister is staying with me as we try and get through this. The wake is tomorrow and the funeral Thursday. I would post a picture of him here but I can't even look at one yet without crying. Dillon was a good kid and a great father, and sweet partner for my sister. He will be missed, so so dearly.

Please, I beg of you guys. Don't argue guns here. I'll talk to you all later, when this.. "passes" I guess...

Oh dear lord.
These things happen so often, we tend to forget the very personal impact this has on the people who know them. I can't imagine finding love like that and then having it brutally taken away for no good reason... :cry: My heart breaks for all of you, especially your sister. Hang in there.

That's horrible, and I wish you well, but why would you share something so personal and devastating on here?

Is that so odd? He has been here for 9 years and is a subscriber. Maybe he likes Neowin? Community and support doesn't have to be only your family.

I guess I wouldn't share such private things so freely.

If I had to guess, as I actually wrote a blog post (back when I used the blog here) about my cousin killing himself, and it very much served as therapy so to speak. I had a lot of emotions bottled up and was not quite sure where to turn. So even though we are all virtual strangers at the end of the day, there is a community vibe here no doubt. Like when I see a post by you, I go "oh, its compl3x, I know him," even though I do not know YOU so to speak.

So yeah, may seem strange at first, but I bet it helped him get it out to someone, anyone.

Yikes, sorry for your loss! I hope you and your sister are doing well, and recover quickly.

Sometimes you just need to tell someone, and if that is on a forum then so be it.

I truly appreciate all the kind sentiments from you guys. It means a lot to me, and my sister knows I frequent here; I will let her see this when the time is right.

As Larry said, for me, it is a form of therapy. Neowin is the only online community I am apart of, and it somewhat feels like a family. It gives me a warm feeling knowing people here truly care, and I would do the same for them, regardless if I know them or not. Most people in my life don't see me cry; my sister relies on me to be strong, and be a shoulder to cry on. I can't turn and do the same around her. I come here where people don't know me that personally, and I don't mind to let my feelings flow so much. This acts as my "shoulder," so to speak.

Again, I really do appreciate it everyone. I hope everyone is well and I love all of you, even if I don't know you. The wake last night really helped a lot of us. Updated the original post with a picture.
I have to go get ready for the funeral. Everyone be well, and remember to remind loved ones you love them. Take care.
