    He wrote to help with his demons, but also to help us with ours, I truly believe that, because from all accounts that's the person he was, he wouldn't think you were being selfish

    I hope it helps to think about it that way, even just a little.

    Hi.

    I'm new here in this forum. I've been a fan of LP since I was 9 or 10 (I'm 26 now), around the time they released Hybrid Theory, but I never bothered to check for forums or LP sites coz I was already satisfied just listening to their songs. Now that this happened, I needed a place safe from judgmental people and negative comments so I'm really glad I found this.

    It still really hurts. It's been almost a week but I'm still crying every time I think about it most esp when I'm alone. I know I love LP but I never knew how much I love them until now, most esp Chester (I was more of a Mike fan in all honesty). It's weird feeling this way, feeling like I lost a family member, to think Chester is someone I don't know personally. He didn't even know I exist. I think I feel this way because I know what he's been through and I lost couple of friends due to depression. I'm not a depressive kind of person but I know how it feels to be helpless so I can just imagine the hell he's been in when he was still with us.

    I don't know what happens to LP now but all I know is I just want them to know we're still here for them and I want them to physically, mentally, and emotionally be okay.

    As for Chester, I hope he's in a much better place now. I hope he's happy and he's enjoying the freedom he's always wanted when he was still with us.

    I love the man so much and I will forever love him until the time I see him again.

    Sorry for this lengthy 'speech.' I've been wanting to say this since he left us but I've got no one to talk to about it so thank you. Looking forward to spending more time with you and knowing you guys.

    It's getting so close to the time he was found. I had a realisation that he was dead by now and I'm so seriously struggling now

    I realize its tough, just know that obsessing over times and dates and particulars regarding those times and days is not a way to remember him by. Try not to focus on the end. Instead, try to remember the infectious smile and the all around good that he tried to spread. I think he would want that more.

    Me too........BUT I just keep focusing on the fact that I'm here and his pain is over now. As much of a struggle as it is to keep putting one foot in front of the other, and it's a HUGE struggle, we're here and we have to keep moving forward, because we need to help each other through this and be here for each other.

    and this is a beautiful thought...much as it hurts I think I'm going to try and find some videos where he's smiling and remember the joy he brought for the time we had him

    I am so trying to remember the good stuff, his smile, fooling around and how darn awesome the music is, but the thoughts sneak in and scream so loudly
