A few weeks ago I was online when I got a PM from Celestial Goblin out of the blue. He was on my friends list (and I obviously on his), and while we had talked a bit of recent I was usually the instigator of the conversations. The message I recieved from the PM was that Pawel (Celestial Goblin) had killed himself recently, and that it was his parent who was sending the message.
At first, I was a little skeptical. I've known people who have had there messenger accounts hacked, so it wasn't beyong the realm of possibilities that this had happened. However, I also knew Pawel. We had known each other, and played some games together for years. I knew that Pawel had a tendency to get depressed from time to time, and it seems that sadly, despite that fact that he seemed ok when talking to him only a few weeks earlier, his demons finally seemed to get the better of him and won.
Checking my e-mail account, I found that the same message had been sent to a variety of people, including one whom was his aunt. She stated that she had been unable to get in contact with Pawel's family in a response e-mail to people. I recently sent an e-mail asking if what had been claimed, Pawel's death, was true or not, and tonight I opened an e-mail to find the aunt confirming that indeed Pawel was dead and the funeral had been conducted last saturday.
I didn't know Pawel as well as I would have liked to. I guess everybody says that when a person dies. What I did know was that he was an exceptionally creative young man who was filled with ideas. He would have difficulties sometimes, hitting dry spells for sometimes months at a time, but the wait was worth it as when the dry spell ended, you were once again treated to his great imaginary skills. He struck me as a good person, who was always friendly to those he talked to. He will be missed.
