"TRIG"

I just wanted everyone to know that Tommy "Trig" Simpson was laid to rest last week. Many of us have discussed this in private messages, but I also wanted to let everyone else know, as I know many people interacted with him here.

Tommy killed himself. I can't put it any simpler than that. For those of us that knew him, that is horrifying in of itself, knowing how much life he had in him.

What I would like people to understand, from what I know, is never, ever stop taking prescription anti-deppressents without discussing it with your physician.

Nobody will ever know what drove him to it, but it may have been a factor enough to just consider it. Know what your taking and understand how to ramp off of them.

I hope he Rests in Peace.

RIP, Trig.

We had some conversations about life and education.

I noticed he was gone for awhile and asked him about it. He said he was taking care of some personal stuff. I should have listened more carefully.

Brother, hope you found your peace.

Hasta.

This board and the world outside of it is a lesser place with your departure.

Looms but the Horror of the shade
And yet the menace of the years
Finds, and shall find, me unafraid.
It matters not how strait the gate,
How charged with punishments the scroll,
I am the master of my fate
I am the captain of my soul.
