I am sorry to say that I have some sad news to share with all of you. I'm one of Mercier's friends from Singapore (I got to know him through his sister, with whom I have been best friends since high school) and I believe many of you know him as a long time poster on DT who was well known for his kindness and generosity.

You probably also know that he took a leave of absence to undergo surgery recently for a medical problem. Unfortunately, he developed complications from the operation and passed away last night.

I decided to share this news with you because from what I've seen in the past year of being on DT, I've come to realize that he is very well loved here. Also, I thought I should let you know just in case any of you have been trying to contact him or are still waiting to receive a package from him.

I have a huge pit in my stomach. I cannot believe that I am reading this. Mercier was one of the most generous people that I have ever "met." He was always there when we needed him for advice, for a smile, a laugh...Shannon was always around to save the day.

I am so sad.

My thoughts and prayers are with his family during this very difficult time.

God Bless Shannon...he will be in our hearts always.

City Girl.

Oh my goodness...my prayers are with the family.

His Journey’s Just Begun

Don’t think of him as gone away-
his journey’s just begun;
Life holds so many facets-
this earth is only one.
Just think of him as resting
from the sorrows and the tears
in a place of warmth and comfort
where there are no days or years.
Think how he must be wishing that we could know, today,
how nothing but our sadness
can really pass away.
And think of him as living
in the hearts of those he touched…
For nothing loved is ever lost-
and he was loved so much.

NOOOOO! This can't be. I'm sooo sad. He was definitely an angel here on earth. He will be sorely missed by many. These words aren't even adequate to describe this tragic loss.

Lottie, thank you for letting us know.

Thank you everyone...I will pass your kind thoughts on to his family. I have also been asked by someone if there's any way in which to contact his family to send condolences.

In case any of you wish to do so, please let me check with them after they get back from Australia, and I'll let you know their contact details.

I am very saddened by Mercier's passing. He was a true gentleman and a kind, generous soul. I think he was only 21. He was loaned to us for too short a time.

This is a huge loss for the world. I only spoke with Mercier a few times online but he was always a great person to everyone he ever interacted with it seems.

Unbelievable News

I cannot believe that I am even reading this. Mercier, I mean Shannon, was far too young to leave us. He will be greatly missed here. His kind soul will not be forgotten.

I know that I will remember him as the "Jewelry Fairy" who not only provided us with eye candy on DT, but he even was generous enough to share his good fortune with many of us.

I just received my package from him today. It will mean even more to me now.

Lottie, please let his family know that he is well loved here. We will miss his warmth and kindness.
