2011 has been a dark time on gtaf so far. Deaths of 2 members who had both been a part of this community for the better part of a decade. Granted, Mario died 10 months before Freak but we only found out about it in July. To have a 2nd death (and it be Freakeh no less) hot off the heals of the info of that is quite a big hit.
At least Odie and Kutt were a year and half or so apart.
Freak was the first moderator I remember seeing in my early days of roaming the VCS section back in 06. A great role model to every new member. I always knew he was handicapped (he posted his van up in vehicle chat from time to time), but never knew he had MD.
