DEATH NOTICE...

Post by Riddick » 11-01-2015 04:05 AM

And Now For Something Completely Dead
The FF2 Is No More
Bereft Of Life, It Rests In Peace

The FANTASTIC FORUM 2, also known as "The Deuce" ceased to be on Thursday, October 8, 2015. A spinoff of the Fantastic Forum, the precipitator of its demise appears to be a sudden major tech failure, though overall community apathy and inactivity is thought to be a significant contributing factor against resuscitation.

Survived by its parent along with Imaginative Worlds (an earlier FF spinoff) and IW's offspring Into Infinity, Fantastic Forum 2 was preceded in death by another FF spinoff, Patrick Henry's Pub and another IW offshoot, the Nighthawk Zone.

Mourners being in short supply, no memorial service is planned, though it is hoped at the very least FF2 members who were still active up to the time of The Deuce's passing do find their way over to The One & Only Original eventually if not sooner.

Catching up on old messages. If the FF2 is no more, then why is Noory still promoting them in his shout out? (I think it was Thursday nights show. Excuse the date confusion as I'm on a different time zone.)

I think Noory well qualifies for the "Moron Label". He will never give up something that loves him, even though it may be "deceased". :roll:

I lost my oldest son - Jason Watkins - age 46 last Sunday late afternoon, early evening. It was very sudden and they say massive heart attack. His wife is suffering a great deal, and been trying to help her as well as deal with my own loss. Visitation and Memorial service June 4th.

How does a parent deal with the loss of a grown child? My heart is heavy with grief and my thoughts are - somewhere...

My condolences CK. Deaths seem to be occurring all around us - my wife just lost her Mom and she's struggling with it. But a child is different. Please know that I'll keep you and your family in my prayers.

The visitation and memorial was Sat June 4th.

I want to thank you all for condolences. It has been difficult for me, and for his wife (who has only her son living in the area). Her family are east coast - so have also been helping her as I can.

I know it is just so difficult to lose a grown son -- (or some who have lost daughters or other younger family members). It will take time.

Again thank you all.
