    R.I.P. RAW

    Hi all,

    Unsure where I should be posting this as there isn't really a section for it.

    Anyway, it has come to my attention that Raw @ Benny took his own life on the 27th of October, I don't have much detail but according to his friends he has been struggling with depression for a while.

    To those of you out there that might have experienced the same thoughts and emotions that he did, even if they only last a few fleeting moments: seek help.

    An object in possession seldom retains the same charm that it had in pursuit.

    That's awful, so sorry to hear that :(

    Rest in peace Raw.

    I wonder if this should be moved elsewhere, so people who knew him can have a better chance to see it and pay their respects.

      RIP Benny . Didn't know him well, but I always enjoyed our chats and he was always a very helpful and kind guy in our interactions. My heart goes out to his family and loved ones.

      good idea, docus.

        Aw fuck. I've had a few conversations with him over the years and he was always incredibly helpful, patient, and understanding.

        Agreed this should be moved. He was a good guy and I think others in the forum that knew him would appreciate knowing.

          Wow. Huge shock!

          Always seemed like a good guy on here and in the conversations that we had via PMs etc.

          I hope that he has found his peace.

              Oh shit

              I email Benny occassionally from time to time, and his replies were always prompt and concise. As people have mentioned, he's one of the most down to earth members on the forums.

              I emailed him a week or so ago but realised something was odd because he didnt reply me. So I just left it and assumed he went on a holiday

              RIP good man

                      If you remember them, you remember the reactions he got. It should remind us all that fashion is as superficial as it can get and you never know what is bubbling underneath from a picture.
                      I hope the place where you are now is better for you, B. You will be missed.

                        ^^^ what DRRRK said. Not trying to guilt trip anyone, but I can't help but feel that clothing/fashion/SZ/the Internet had a good part to do in his life; and certainly hope that all the crude, unconstructive remarks he got did not add on to his depression.

                        Damn. I only communicated with him a couple of times, I really liked this guy; seemed very genuine n all. It really does sucks to know he has left us in such an unfortunate manner.

                          I am very sad to hear this. I didn't know Raw that well, but he pm:ed me several times when I needed help and acted in a very thoughtful, engaged and considerate way. He was one of the good guys.

                            shocked , he had a good eye and demeanour. He rode the WAYWT episode like a trooper and stayed the course, gave me some good advice R.I.P

                              So sorry to hear... Although I have never been too much in touch with him, through the forums, I have a feeling of familiarity. This really touches me. Sincere condolences to all his friends, family and those who will miss him. Hope there is a better life for you, Raw, wherever you are now.
