    Hey everyone. Sorry if this is not the place to post this, but I totally don't know where to post.

    I don't like to bring bad news, but... Kaleo passed away this morning. I know he was a regular here, so I thought I should let you guys know. I also posted on GameFAQs (where I'm more active), so I'll copy/paste some parts of what I posted there:

    He was a very close friend of mine. Yes, we knew each other in person. Although from different states of Brazil, I would often visit him during vacation from college.

    Three weeks ago he went to the hospital, with a severe case of bacterial pneumonia. One week later, he was put into a induced coma and tubed, so the medication could work better. When I heard of it from his mother, I got some bus tickets and went all the way there (10 hours trips) to visit him and support his family: this was on the weekend before last. Despite everything, he was showing good signs of recovery, even if at small steps, every day. In fact, I learned that yesterday he was not into induced coma anymore, although he'd be asleep most of the time.

    We're all perplexed. All the friends can't understand what happened, as he was getting better during the past two weeks. I was the one who'd call his mother every other day and pass the news to all the friends. I.... I'm still at a loss.

    I know he was also active on reddit, but I don't post there, if someone could pass the information on...

    Rest in peace, my friend. You'll be missed by many.

    I am really sorry to hear this. My condolences to you, to his friends and family.

    It's a shocker that pneumonia can still be a deadly disease at this time and age. It's very common where I live and people get treated without problem and always recover. It must have been a very serious case :(

    That's rather rude of you. Although we did not know said temper, We should still pay our respects towards him/her and their family.

    Define strangers.. Kaleo was a somewhat familiar face around here, so a lot of us at least know a part of him (Same can be said for Densetsu, just I feel like more people here knew him than Kaleo but eh)


    Rest in Peace Kaleo

    What if it is?
    and a lot of people cared about Densetsu, so you may as well go to that thread and say the same
    I have a quote from it in my sig, so there's a way to it from there :/

    Dude, that's very inconsiderate and just plain rude of you to even accuse the OP of that. Show some respect. What next, are you going to say Densetu's death was the same?
