Something's on My Mind and I Can't Get It Off.

I found out, about a week ago, that one of my Youtube "friends" died. At first I thought it was a joke, because quite frankly he has a whole Youtube channel dedicated to his practical jokes. But its not, he is gone.

I had never met the guy, he lives in the UK. The reason he was my "friend" was, he was the first to comment on my channel, the first to give me encouraging words on my videos, and he was so entertaining in his own videos. The problem is, even though I don't know this guy I feel like a really good friend is gone. I have been quite upset and confused about it.

And I quote myself: "One of my friends, well not really my friend, but someone I watch on Youtube..."

The funny thing about most youtubers is you know so much about their lives. because they are willing to share it, that you really do feel like they are your friends.

This guy was a great youtuber and had a lot of loyal followers. I think it's because he was so encouraging to others, saying how great their videos were, and I think he really meant it too. That is certainly a legacy in and of it self. I will miss his videos and encouraging words. I guess I don't really understand the impact that people have on each other. It is really quite amazing!

I feel a bit silly about this, but I just can't seem to get it off my mind.

Well here are his last two Youtube uploads. I guess this is it...

When someone suddenly is matter if you are best of friends or a mere acquaintance it is a loss. I think I would have liked to watch his utube events...He was adventurous, well spoken and willing to share his life. How did you find out? It is good for you to talk about him - Maybe this will help you clear your mind a little
