Sad news about Moono

I heard today from Moono's mom, that he succumbed to a nasty cancer in April of 2012. Many of us had chatted with Moono, so I wanted to share it publicly. I was thinking about a small Moon donation to this charity: http://www.acrf.com.au/ - if you are interested, let me know by Jan 14 and I'll coordinate and arrange it...

Sad. A young fellow and he so loved the moon. I wondered why we hadn't seen him around for some time.

RIP!

RIP Moono!

You told us about your fight against this terrible enemy and you were always so positive. I am very sad to hear that you lost this fight.

We will miss you

Re: Sad news about Moono

I had a friend in college who was fan of Yes, KC, Genesis, PF etc who died from cancer. He was a good guitarist too. This reminded me of him. Sad to hear about Moono. RIP Moono.

Dang. I didn't see that coming. I wondered where he'd been. RIP, Moono.

Unhappy Re: Sad news about Moono

It is very sad news to hear of this. I remember Moono. He had changed his member name to something else last few times I chatted with him here. My sincere condolences. I will always remember his intro to the shoutbox was a simple "Hi".

Jim, I would like to donate something in rememberance of Moono. Please indicate here where to send.

I would like that Moono's Familiy knows, that he was not here on the Moon one of the thousands anonymous users, but that he was appreciated here as a real member of a prog comunity. So not the amount counts to be donated , but the fact that many participate with a simbolic $.

WOW This is sad news. We had other common music interests that we shared here. I will miss his "Hi" followed by "?".

RIP Moono.

Re: Sad news about Moono

FYI, Google found this brief fragment of Moonoffruits' obituary:
PURCELL, Justin Thomas Moore Park Beach. Passed away peacefully on 14th April, 2012, at the Mater Private Hospital, South Brisbane. Aged 31 years. Much loved...
Much too young.

Re: Sad news about Moono

Didn't knew Justin was that young ... I remember him often as very radical. It was difficult to conversate with him if you're coloured opinion wasn't black or white. But in the beginning when Moono arrived in the shoutbox I had many talks with him about he's passions and his life.
I knew he had cancer but I also remembered he was sometimes many months away without any sine of life .... and if you didn't expect him anymore he surprised us again in the shoutbox. Even with a new name.
This last surprise wasn't what I expected. May he rest in peace.
