Terrible news about Owen. It will need its own thread, but I don't want to say it's the case. but Twitter has the worst news possible.

You can read there, but as Patience will probably need all the thoughts we can send on in the coming time you can read there. Owen has passed away.

I'm afraid not. Apparently they couldn't bring him back, and he has passed away.

What, is that true? Or am I misunderstanding? Please, explain because I am not wanting to comprehend what is written here.

Seriously? Patience's Twitter feed hasn't updated for me since the tweet about them saying cardiac. I sincerely hope that's not true.

Patience and Meems are friends, I don't think Patience has been tweeting.

No, quite. Shit.

I appear to have attempted to type something several times, but I keep deleting it. Don't know what to say really. I need to go out now but I'll be back later... maybe as a forum we should do something? Even if it's just to send some flowers Patience's way.

Owen was such a lovely bloke...

Yeah I think everyone is stuck in the reply screen repeatedly typing and deleting, because there really is nothing we can say. :( It fucking sucks, big time, and I definitely think we ought to organise something!

The very least we could do is split this out so people who don't read BnB can be informed. :(

I can't believe, I've had to read and reread things because I feel as though I can't possibly be seeing what I think I am. I can't imagine what Patience is going through, send her our love Mimi. Xxx

Yes, so so sadly it is true. It is impossible to know what to say. Metalousie (I think a couple of you know her) and another knitting/twitter friend are on their way to her now.

Just got in from work and Joans told me the news. That's really really awful, such a stand up guy.

Thoughts go out to Patience and the family of course.

Sad day. :(

Terrible news. Dunno what to say. It's hard to take it in when it happens so fast.

I always say that internet message boards are just words on screen, but behind those words are real people with real lives. I have no idea if there was an underlying medical condition or indeed if it was out of the blue.

Something needs to be done at a forum level. A collection for some flowers, I dunno. Something so we can at least say he was one of us.

Rav have started a fund for her where you can make a donation.

http://wewantmoregoats.chipin.com/patiences-love-fund

Dunno what else to do really. I think Mimi knows her best, so maybe can direct us? (Not wanting to put anything on you Meems, just thought you know her better than anyone on here) :(

Owen was saying he had a chest infection the past few days, I was joking with him yesterday that he had passed it to me & now he's gone :(

Jesus. He honestly was one of the nicest guys I've met. So, so gutted for his family - what a terrible time they've had this year.

So sad. Mimi, please let Patience know at a suitable moment that if there's anything we as a community can do, she just has to ask.

Splitting the thread out now.

I've known Owen for about 12 years now, on various usenet groups and in here. Maybe we could have a forum like wake where we remember him fondly and recount amusing anecdotes of our encounters with him over the years. Once I get my head clear I'll give it some thought.

Hopefully we can set up a small collection for, I don't know, some flowers, something else? Patience is a lovely girl and very delicate, and it would be nice to let her and his family know that he will be so dearly missed by people.

@DBS, yes, sorry, my head is too fogged to be practical at the moment, but hopefully we can arrange something in the coming days.
