I have never met him. Neither personally or on internet. No death is on time and each is early enough But in suc a young age it is even toooo early. May he rest in peace. I am really sorry to hear about his death. No word can change something. All we can do is to pray for him.
Magically Yours,

OZLEN TUNCER /Dr.TORA

Condolences to all the friends and family who knew and loved him. I'm sorry for your loss. It's terribly sad and words escape me except to say you're in my thoughts.

I'm now tearing up, I had just subscribed to his Youtube Channel a week ago and saw his video about how magic changed his life for the better, this in turn inspired me. His weight loss thoughout the videos was incredible and you could tell he was trying to work on himself. Terrible news...

One of the greatest tragedies about suicide is that such a momentary decision, a single instance of unbearable sadness, brought about by. ..Whatever. .. Has such permanent effects. For the victim, and for those who love them. Almost invariably, survivors of suicide attempts claim that it was the single worst decision of their lives, and are unimaginably thankful their attempt failed.

Well, the act may have been momentary, but not necessarily the decision. Kevin was probably thinking about this for a very long time. He did not seem to be impetuous. I think he stuck with it as long as he could. I feel we are all rather "thrown" into life without much of an instruction sheet. We encounter many, many things in life that would cause any rational person to ask "why"? Perhaps Kevin gave this all the thought he could, but just decided the answer was seriously insufficient. Do not we all have free choice on that one?

It was his choice to make and he owned it. I agree, at the very least let him have that much. If he had survived once more he may have been extremely thankful, as gaddy states. But his attempt succeeded this time, and there's a reason. I don't advocate for suicide. But I have no right to his choice. This is my opinion, for what it's worth.

Very well said. I agree.

Since I've said I don't advocate for suicide this should go without saying, but for the sake of clarity I'd like to add that Kevin's right to choose suicide as an option doesn't preclude another's right to choose (prior, during, or subsequent to his attempt) to actively advocate for his survival. Hope that's clear, again, for what it's worth.
Peace, Kevin.

I don't profess to be an expert, but I'll daresay I think the word "Instructions" can be misconstrued there.

I'm sorry to hear of this. I haven't been on the Café much until recently. Very sad. Prayers for Kevin's family.

Saw Steve Brooke's message back in April and immediately thought of STFS, but then I checked his user profile and saw it was still active, so I thought, "good, at least it wasn't him..." Now I see that it was. Kevin was a beautiful young man - he had an earnestness and sense of wonder that came through in his posts and PMs. Looking at his YouTube videos now, it's also obvious that he was extremely talented. My mother was undiagnosed bipolar when I was growing up, so I have some appreciation for the daily struggle that some have despite their best efforts. That too came through in some of Kevin's posts. Very sad to hear that he took such permanent action during a down time. But all of that aside, he had a technical ability, work ethic, and the blessing of natural good looks and charisma that most only aspire to. Goodbye, Kevin.
Now appearing nightly in my basement.
