This came as a blow to us earlier on in the week but just this morning we received word that our long time corp mate and friend, Andy Mercer more commonly known in EVE as the character Shaelin Corpius, passed this morning.

He was involved in a head on collision two days past and had been in ICU battling the unimaginable state of injuries he incurred. There was a complication with a brain hemorrhage while undergoing surgury.

The following was passed to us from his girlfriend and I feel it necessary as not only CEO but as a long time, stand-up friend to transpire the message since he was a long time player and made a positive impact on many during his tenure within EVE.

"He was known to be a great man and father to his son. He was a kind and generous person and would do almost anything for anyone. This has hit all of us very hard. Im at least grateful that he passed in his sleep and I hope that he didn't have to endure any more pain than he allready had faced.

I know he wanted to personally say goodbye to everyone, and I wished for the moment that he would recover and be able to do so. He will be missed more than anyone knows and if there is anything any of you could do to remember him by I'm sure he woulda loved that. He always treasured all of you as his great friends, always having a place to have fun and build new relationships around the world.

He loved travelling and served his country to the best of his abilities. I know his parents will be arranging for a military accompanyment. But for now I really need to be with his family and son Brian.

Thank you all so very much for your love and concern I know that he is in a better place now and will allways be with you in spirit."

In memory of:

Andrew James Mercer, II

June 30 1977 - August 29 2006

We'll love and miss you Andy.

Winterblink was kind enough to give him one last Warp Drive Active.

I think the entire corp is in shock right now, it hasn't really sunk in yet. I'm not really sure what to say or do.

Shaelin will be missed.

My most heartfelt and deepest regards to everyone who knew and loved him... particularly his girlfriend... as I know what such a loss is like... today is the anniversary of the death of my fiancee.

No words can describe what his family and friends will be struggling to deal as the weeks, months and years pass...

I can only say that I wish I had more time to get to know him... and that I deeply hope that his family and loved ones will find the strength, tenacity and hope to take every day one step at a time.

I'm shocked and don't really know what to say, other than it was an honour to have flown with him and that he will be missed. My thoughts go out to all his family and friends. RIP Andy.

GOF sends their sincere consolences to both his family and friends.

We too have experienced the loss of a friend/corpmate recently and most of us are currently at a lack of words to express our sorrow.

We look to a day when death will be no more.

The written word is never enough for these occasions

I can only add my condolences to his family and friends and say it was a privilidge to fly with him for the short time we had, he will be missed.


Posted - 2006.08.29 22:23:00 - [18]

I cry for the loss to so many people. I hope whatever diety you worship carries you through this difficult time. Take whatever comfort you can in the fact that he's in a better place now.

I'd like to offer my condolences both to shae's friends and family in this difficult time. And im sure his former corpmates in LFC and those that knew him from 3rd Front during the old days will wish to do the same.

We have been both friends and enemies in this game and regardless of what rivalries there may have been in the past or words exchanged, this tragic event puts things into perspective. I cant say I knew him very well but im glad I did have the opportunity to know him all the same.

Rest in peace Shaelin, you'll be missed.

A very sad day indeed. This is a grim reminder of the reality that is actual, good people behind avatars in a virtual world of pretend spaceships aswell as the hardships of life and their finality. I never knew Shaelin well, and I never will but my woeful thoughts are with him and I offer my deepest condolences to those close to him.

See you in another life, brother.

I didn't know him well or long as haven't been in the MC but he was a person who stuck out to me and in a good way, take care Andrew, you will be greatly missed.

I don't know what words to say to his son, girlfriend and the rest of his family but somehow I hope that you can come to terms with his loss. If it helps a small part then try to celebrate his life than mourn his death as our lives have all been touched for the better by his presence in them and what could be more beautiful than that.

It's amazing how quickly things can happen. You were never anything but awesome to me in the brief time we were both in the MC. You will be missed.

Fly safe, Andrew.

Knowing him for the short time of a few months I am happy to say I knew him and called him a friend.

It was a long time since I had spoken to him over teamspeak or in-game. I wish his family all condolences, and hope that his girlfriend will do well after this.

Times in our lives are short, so we must live them to our fullest.

Here's to Andrew, the one who deserves our respect.

May he reast in peace.
