Hello citizens of Lookout Landing. I have not posted here in many months, but I used to be a quasi-regular (mostly from the years 2006-2012ish). I come here today to pass on some bad news relating to a guy who also used to post here regularly, kevin_ess. I have never met Kevin in person; in fact he is solely, to me, an "internet friend." But I recently learned via Facebook that he is has been in the ICU for several days with a severe infection that started in a tooth and has spread to his neck, lungs, and heart.
This message is mostly for anyone who remembers posting with Kevin - I do, he was a regular in the game threads and OFFTOP threads "back in the day." Based on a cursory review of his Fan Posts, he did meet a fair number of LL members in person. If you have no idea who he is or who I am, feel free to ignore this message. But if you are feeling generous, his family has set up a donation drive to assist with his medical expenses. Here is the link.
That is all. Hug your loved ones, enjoy life, etc. Go Mariners.
