Default Worst news in TO history.

Some may know this but for those who donít I have some terrible news.

Freddie Hope (a.k.a Kangaroo Joe, a.k.a Hatman, a.k.a The Guv) Passed away last Tuesday (January 02, 2007) of Leukemia.

He was the moderator of the Ork section and the Enclave here on TauOnline.org. He was my co-mod, and one of my best friends. We talked almost everyday. He was like the older brother that would help you out with anything. He brought happiness and joy to countless hundreds on TauOnline alone. Unfortunatly, I never met him in person but he was as good a friend as any Iíve made in person. He helped me through hard times and laughed with me through the good. And although we were quite the opposite in most things(me being the elf fanatic and he being the ork and dwarf player) and both of us always argueing the better we always remained best mates throughout the whole time. He trained me to be a good mod and helped me achieve the person I am today. I owe a lot to him. He was one of the best persons Iíve ever known. Words cannot describe what his friendship meant to me. And I hope that where ever he his that he is watching us and that he is a peace. I just wish I couldíve thanked him for everything heís done for me, TO, and everyone heís ever known.

To show some people who didnít know him what he was like Iíd like to finish this post by taking a few exerpts of his posts over the time he spent here on TauOnline.

We want KJ for our leader
KJ is a man of class
We Want KJ for our leader
all stand and raise your booze filled glass

Gentlemen and assassins and ladies of the night
I call upon this evening in the hope of shedding some light
What happened to our country, and the men who made it great?
When I see just how things have gone it makes me quite Irate

The streets are full of low lifes, and the local CID
offers them free massages and not the third degree
There is no simple solution in this life we lead
thats why the ones who do the work will continue to bleed

We want KJ for our leader
KJ is a man of class
We Want KJ for our leader
all stand and raise your booze filled glass

Peace shall not prevail entirely came the stark warning today
From his high bar stool Lord KJ vowed he was here to stay
"I'll tell ya summit for nothing" he claimed "never in all my days"
"have I felt so let down by the "leaders" we must pay "

Aah-ah-ah-ah
Aah-ah-ah-ah

We want KJ for our leader
KJ is a man of class
We Want KJ for our leader
all stand and raise your booze filled glass

And approaching the pulpit the right honorable Reverend Wargamer
"we are gathered here this evening to pay our due respects"
"to Sensible British thinking and the lives it helped direct"
"towards a better future and the greatness of our nation"
"the chavs are off the straight and each is at his station"

Gentlemen and assassins and ladies of the night
I call upon this evening in the hop of shedding new light
There is a simple solution one called British Thinking, son
and it will turn this country round before KJ is done

Amah-ah-ah-ah
Amah-ah-ah-ah
Aah-ah-ah-ah
Aah-ah-ah-ah

We want KJ for our leader
KJ is a man of class
We Want KJ for our leader
all stand and raise your booze filled glass

We want KJ for our leader
KJ is a man of class
We Want KJ for our leader
all stand and raise your booze filled glass

We want KJ for our leader
KJ is a man of class
We Want KJ for our leader
all stand and raise your booze filled glass!
With all that said and done, I raise my mug to KJ.

A toast to KJ!

WWWWWAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAGGGGGGGGHHHHHHHHH!!!!!! !!

Kagaroo Joe.

KJ...I'll miss him, even though I didn't know him that well besides "that one awesome dude on the forums".

Too bad he is gone and we can't do anything about it. And I know most of us would do anything we could to bring him back to join our ranks again!

This Pints to him!

TO, KJ's friends and all his family have suffered a great loss at the hands of fate.

R.I.P KJ, we will forever remember you when we rise our Pints.

Possibly one of the best things anyone has said to me was what KJ once said...

"your the closest thing we have to an American Brit......"

Wherever you are now... I toast and salute you, KJ!

Here's to KJ, a great mod, an amazing person. Someone I would have liked to know better.

My next drink will be a toast to him, and I know we will all miss him.

I think Hammerfall says it all...

Glory to The Brave:

Snow is falling down on this glorious land
colors fading, turning into white again
To fallen heroes angels sting, they cry their winter tears
endless mourning days will turn to years

So this is goodbye, I take leave of you and
spread your wings and you will fly away now, fly away now

Nothing on earth stays forever
but none of your deeds were in vain
Deep in our hearts you will live again
you're gone to the home of the brave

Every solemn moment I will treasure inside
even though it's hard to understand
that a silent wind can blow that candle out
taking everything leaving the pain far behind

You call out my name, but your voice is fading
into the wind, embraced, you'll fly away now, fly away now

Nothing on earth stays forever
but none of your deeds were in vain
Deep in our hearts you will live again
you're gone to the home of the brave

My eyes are closed I feel you're faraway (so close)
far beyond that shining star
I know you'll find what you've been fighting for
far beyond that shining star

Down on bended knee I pray, bring courage to these souls
make 'em live forever in the heart of the bold
So I say farewell my friends, I hope we'll meet again
when my time has come to fall from the grace

So this is goodbye, I take leave of you and
spread your wings and you will fly away now, fly away now

Nothing on earth stays forever
but none of your deeds were in vain
Deep in our hearts you will live again
you're gone to the home of the brave


Rest in peace, KJ.
