Tragedy is what brings me back to post this journal. Monty Oum was a creative force to be reckoned. It saddens me that someone who had such a great outlook on life just suddenly be gone.

When I heard the news, I immediately stopped what I was doing and stared blankly deep in thought trying to remember everything I knew about Monty. How much positive energy he had when I first met him at the first PAX East. How he made everyone smile in the auditorium and yell in jubilation as the warthog blasted through the concrete wall aiming for Agent Washington. As I sat through trying to remember everything about Monty, I just can't help but realize how much the reality of the fact is hitting me hard. Monty has a legacy that will live on through all those who enjoyed his work so much.

A toast to Monty, may he be remembered forever.
