    For almost the past twenty years, I've been playing online with one of my oldest and dearest friends, Gary - who called himself Bound online.
    We met on Ultima Online, a veritable world of opportunity back then when MMO's were still kind of new on the scene. We kept in touch throughout all these years and he's been a pretty big crutch for me, from my college days through even helping with my concerns about my children, no online friend has quite had the same impact on my life, and I can't thank him enough for being a part of it.

    He was going to be at my wedding this upcoming October.
    Unfortunately, on the 15th of May, 2017: Gary ended his own life. Things had been stressful, life got a bit too much and he just couldn't cope. Words can't describe how devastated it left many people in his life. Including myself.
    So, in remembrance and to preserve my memory of him as a true friend and a gamer's best pal, I'll be changing my forum handle to Bound, his old online moniker.

    Thank you for your understanding.

    RIP
    Suicide isn't about inflicting damage, but ending the pain.
