    Dean. Thanks for the laughs, the conversations and the kindess you've shown everyone throughout the years. I'm happy your struggle is over, I'm sad that we lost you. Rest in peace, my friend.

    I remember him writing about his cancer treatment without letting go of his humour. Also very kind person, helpful to the community and indeed like an "uncle" to many around here.

    He shall indeed be missed.

    The guy seemed to be able to find the positive in anything....
    Haven't really had a conversation with him in a few years...
    But here is some of what I remember...random Kreij from GN
    February, 17 2010
    He is off to Sto-vo-kor


    One thing is for sure and that is he will be missed by many...
    My condolences to the family
    and I pledge to drink many beers while eating lots of meat in the name of Kreij.

    My condolences. I never got to know him well.

    Pain is only limited to flesh and now you are forever free of pain .

    You will be missed.

    Jesus, Dean was always so positive despite his situation. I remember the post a while back about his bad health, and I remember the stubborn guy refused to take any soppy crap from us. He straight out said he didn't want our pity and was very "moderator" about it :laugh:

    Kinda sad, I genuinely thought he might make it through this one, at least he seemed to make out he might.

    I remember reading the last story about a good guy on TPU who died of cancer, but I don't remember his name. I do however remember everyone clubbed together and gave a struggling family a PC to use or something. Maybe we could do the same, in honor of Kreij
