    I'm sad to say that I hadn't known him prior. I'm sadder now for those that grieve his absence. May his memory be a blessing.
    Rest in peace, king. We'll see you on the other side. Til all are one in the well of all sparks.

    I've gone back and forth on what to post a here a few times now and I feel like I can't find the words. I wrote a little blurb off the cuff a few days ago on Twitter but I don't know, it just feels so empty. I feel so selfish for being sad that I'll never see my friend again, knowing that closer friends and family must be going through so much more.

    Here's my thoughts on Bryce for anyone that feels like reading it.

    It's tragic. I'll miss you buddy. I'm still sorry about losing your book.

    Love ya man.

    Man, another one of us old guard guys passing away way too early. I really enjoyed his pictures, my interactions with him here, and his appearances on various TF youtube channels. My condolences to his loved ones. We lost another good one.

    When I was digging into Facebook and Reddit to find answers the morning it happened, I was at a total loss of words for how I felt, I totally get it …

    thank you for sharing your memories, it’s crazy to look back and realize it truly was the last drink you would share with him :( 

    I too hope that his book can come to light … and it sounds like several other people are involved and hopefully will continue to push for it to see the light of day… I never met Bryce in person but had many conversations here and on FB, and as a vintage G1 fan myself I truly volunteer to put in any leg work that might be needed to see that come true.

    I didn’t know Bryce personally, but his username and brilliant photography are integral to TFW’s identity to me as anything. He’s one of the original usernames I think of when my mind comes to this site. Losing him is such a tragic loss for everyone, not just this community.

    RIP and love and thoughts to his family and friends

    Oh man. I rarely post nowadays but I just had to offer my condolences to Bryce's family and loved ones.

    I fondly remember his pictures and posts. What a huge loss to our community :(

    I am so sorry for his family and friends. I did not know Brr-icy very well personally, but I did business with him. He was super nice, very reasonable and helped me out when I was struggling to find some pieces for a price I could afford.

    He's the reason I was able to upgrade my favorite combiner, Computron. Brr-icy, Transformers fans everywhere salute you. This flex is for you!

    This news caught me off guard totally.

    Used to talk a fair bit with brr-icy when we were all in the same group (LD, prototype & rare TFs) back then.

    May he rest in peace & my condolences to his family & friends.
