I bring very sad news

Postby Cyberborn1 » Tue Feb 21, 2012 10:54 am

16:05 today, the 21st of February 2012, Magnus Kylliäinen, a young boy known to you as ZetZu, passed away do the cancer he had been battling for a few years.

He was a dear friend of mine and I know that he had many loved ones within this community and I wanted all of you to know.
I have been told that the cancer in his thigh rapidly spread to the liver and then to the stomach and that after only a few hours of pain, Magnus fell into sleep and never woke up.

Other than that I don't really know what to say.

He will always be in my heart and memory as one of the strongest people I have known. I young boy who battled cancer and still found it in his heart to smile.
He will be missed and loved.

I had feared this day. Magnus was a fighter and he fought the good fight. For someone so young, he had so much courage. He will be missed. :cry:

I hate that this is the usual story I hear with cancer. He was a great editor and a great person. Best wishes to his dear friends and family he will be missed here.

This is very sad news, indeed. From what I've seen and known of him, he was a talented editor and an all-around nice guy. We will all miss him greatly. :(

The noble viking with that Canon camera. This... doesn't feel right. There were times when i felt jealous of him... young, handsome, talented. You will be missed, Zetzu. May you rest in peace.

Though I never actually knew him, I've seen plenty of his work, it's sad to see such a talented and gifted person leave us this way

Magnus seemed like an amazing guy as well as an amazing editor. I wish we worked on something together while he was still in AuN as well as getting to know him better. He will be missed and remembered by all of us fellow editors.

I didn't get to chat with him as much as I would have liked.

But I am proud to have been able to call him my friend.

He was an amazing person and with all this stuff going on in his life he still managed to keep his spirits up and be full of life and humor.

I'm going to try to not be so damn depressed, and now I'll have to dance (and drink) for the two of us.

My first instinct right now is to be angry and upset and bitter. And maybe that's okay in a situation like this. But at the same time, a big part of me is saying to focus on the fact that he never let his condition bring him down. He was always a fighter and always an intensely bright human being. To say "life is unfair" and "he was too young" and "why do awful things happen to great people" are all justifiable, but all I really want to do is give him a hug and tell him he'll be sorely missed... My heart is exceptionally heavy right now but I want to send my condolences, thoughts and prayers to his family. There is no greater pain than losing a child and I can't even begin to imagine what his parents are going through right now.

We'll all miss the hell out of you Magnus. It was a sincere honor to know you and call you a friend.
