    Oh Jesus, to get lost at sea.

    No one should have to go like that. Especially when it's not their time.

    R.I.P. :(

    God, make it make sense.

    Bryce helped me alot on this site. Random chats, finding figures, video games, etc. I made a post one day about struggling on a raid in Destiny. He set up a group to basically escort me through the raid. One of the best online experiences in my life. Hit me up a few times in game and on the boards afterwards just to check on me and help with anything. I'm at a loss for words. I pray his family finds strength and peace during this horrible time.

    Sad to say I don't believe he and I ever got the chance to get acquainted. Rest in peace man, I always hate to hear news like this regardless of how well I knew them or not...

    I never really knew the guy personally, but often saw him on this forum. Seen him in a post here or there, ever since I joined this forum back in 2009. It’s such a shame to loose someone who became such an active part of this little community and this fandom. Where ever he’s gone now I hope he finds peace.

    I've always liked seeing Bryce's posts on the forum and I am going to miss seeing him around and reading his thoughts. My deepest condolences to Bryce's family and closest friends.

    I remember seeing his photos around on the board, although I wasn't lucky enough to interact with him to my memory. My sincerest condolences to his family, friends, and loved ones.

    You know, in all seriousness, they should. That was six years ago, there's all different people at Hasbro now, they might be willing to sign off on this. And what a legacy to leave Bryce, finally getting his work published.

    100%!!

    I know the group was called “Ocular Echo” … does anyone in the know actually know who else has the files or was Bryce the only one to store them?

    I’m in contact with some close friends and family of his (part of why I knew all the details before most people) … and if no one else has them then /MAYBE/ there’s a chance to obtain them.

    Hypothetically, I’d love there to be a team involved that has them and can keep pushing for publication … but if not, then I think at the very least having an online version of the pages hosted for the fandom would still be an absolute legacy to leave behind! And I’d 100% volunteer my time and energy to make that happen

    I hope someone can look into this. If there is a way to start a fund or petition to get the ball rolling, I believe most of us here would be willing to help or contribute.
