This Monday, the 21st of July 2014, Kouji suffered a stroke. He had surgery to remove the clot in his brain but suffered critical brain damage bordering on brain death. His family has made the decision to take him off life support; he passed on peacefully and painlessly this morning. This is a very sudden, big loss for all his friends at THD and within the KAG community. As many of you know, Kouji has been fighting cancer for a while, but seemed to be on the long slow road to recovery - to have all of that snatched away so quickly is an awful shock. His sense of humour, keen wit and insight will be sorely missed. While many of us are still reeling from the news, we should use this chance to reflect on all that he's done for this community and all the fun times we've shared with him; and to support each other and his family in grieving this loss. Never Forget. From his younger sister Karen: If you would like to pay your respects to Kouji, reminisce about any shared experiences or extend support towards his family, this is the thread to do it in. We'll be keeping the thread moderated so don't stress if a post takes a few minutes to appear. There's also a conversation with plans for an online wake via mumble and a donation pool for flowers for his family and a cancer charity donation for those who want to get more involved.
