    Goodbye my Friends

    Hello my name is Bryan I am a friend of Nick and his family. I have been asked to do this by Andrea because for obvious reasons she is not up to it. Going through Nick's Instructions he wrote down unfortunately he passed away this morning. He left one last blog/farewell that he wanted posted here for everyone. So here it is. If you have any questions or comments you can email me at somekindoflightning@yahoo.com


    If you all are reading this that means the tumors finally got me. I'm bummed that I won't be around anymore to have great conversations with you all becaused I loved y time here meeting and talking to so many great people like. Booty,Fuji,Cereal Killer,Jim, and so many others here. But apparently it's my time now to go to the eternal resting place and look over my wife and my girls. And if I can somehow help them become whatever they want to in life.


    Goodbye my friends and Farewell. From Flock U

    Oh My God...I'm devastated by this. I only knew of him by his screen name, but we had a lot in common. I'm so, so very sorry about this. I mean we knew it was coming, but I don't think anyone thought it was going to be so soon. My sincerest sympathies go out to Andrea and his daughters.

    I don't know what to say. He was a really good dude. He seemed to keep a positive outlook throughout everything. Glad WC was able to honor him as a HOFer. RIP, Flock.

    'The fear of death follows from the fear of life. A man who lives fully is prepared to die at any time.'

    Never met him. Never spoke to him. Didn't interact in anyway, but the blog was nothing if not inspiring and a testament to his strength of character as a person. My sympathies go out to his friends and family, but from what I've read they knew they were loved.

    Rest easy man. You've earned it

    So sorry for your wife, and children. Been following your journey, and the fact you were strong enough to live every day like it was your last was and will always be inspiring. Rest in Peace.

    RIP Flock. That's so cruel, was hoping he'd live long enough to see his third child be born. My thoughts and prayers are with the family. As i explained in the PM please pass on any information about donations in his honour if there is one.

    So glad we didn't delay his HOF induction.

    Don't think I'd ever spoke to the guy, but would check that thread out of curiosity whenever I saw it pop up with a new post from him.

    I think I've posted on forums like this for nearly or over 10 years now, so for all I know a decent amount of people I've interacted with could be dead. I think this is the first time I've seen it confirmed. Obviously feels pretty weird.

    RIP

    Re: Goodbye my Friends

    Flock U was always a good guy to talk to, and have conversations with when it came to struggles going on with life. I'm going to miss his energy, his passion and ability to turn a negative thing in his life to a positive one. If I ever become a Dad, I hope to be a great Dad like he was till my last breathe.

    RIP Flock

    This is heartbreaking. We all knew this was going to happen eventually, but man...this is still a kick to the gut.

    Flock...Nick...you were a good dude who didn't deserve this, but you faced it with a dignity we all admire and respect. May you find peace. Farewell, buddy.

    Never had the chance to have a proper discussion with Flock U but I always thought he was a cool guy. He fought this thing to the end and he had his loved ones by his side. I will always remember Flock U, he will be missed. My sympathies go out to his friends and family.

    Rest In Peace my friend.

    Shit. Absolutely gutted. My condolences go to his family, especially the little one that will have never met him. It's not fair, life deals a shitty hand every now and then. Godspeed Flock.

    Re: Goodbye my Friends

    I hope you were able to make all the recordings and little things for your children. I'm happy that you got to spend one final Christmas with your family and friends too. I always enjoyed our interactions and conversations. I send all of my positive thoughts and energy to be with them now that you're gone. You will be missed by everyone here. RIP my friend.

    Re: Goodbye my Friends

    I want to write something positive and sensitive and uplifting and all the rest of that but I'm just too fucking sad to even think about it right now. Hopefully I'll be a little more composed in the morning but for now I'll give Flock the greatest compliment I can think of; in the history of my forum posting I've never been at a loss for words and you've finally been the one to put me in that position. RIP, Godspeed and whatever else they say.

    Re: Goodbye my Friends

    Only talked now and again but I'm proud of you, brother. Won't repeat everything but the sentiment is the same. Thanks for posting this, Bryan. Praying for the family. Happy you made it to see the Cubs finally win the big one at least. Wish it had been longer but you fought until the last second. Loads of respect, man. Rest in Peace.

    Re: Goodbye my Friends

    I barely interacted with him but we dug a lot of the same bands and I was always amused by his fav 5 lists with his love of Seagal and whatnot. I didn't comment much but I followed the blog from the beginning and the way he dealt with this shit was admirable. I'm truly bummed that he didn't get to see his third daughter born. RIP Flock.

    Re: Goodbye my Friends

    Rip Flock. Never spoke much but your blog thread was one of the most touching things I have ever read. You are an inspiration for everyone to live their life to the max, and to always let loved ones know that you love them. And while we may not have spoken much, I feel touched that you cared enough about the forum to spend time updating us all.

    I am heartbroken, and saddened. All the very best to you, your wife and children.

    Thank you Bryan for posting this.
