The Stratics Staff received this poignant email announcing the passing of one of our long time community members in UO. We have the sad news that Goodman, founder of www.uogoodman.com has passed away. Here is the email we received from his son (edited for the sender's security): <blockquote><hr> to whom it may concern, i dont know if this mail will be posted or read, or if anyone will care.... my father was the original goodman, he started in the atlantic shard, i was there when he made his character. i am his real life son. he later came to develop what is known as his "goodmans rune library". he was the original owner of www.uogoodman.com. my father was so proud of his accomplishments for the game.... he truely felt a sense of pride whilest playing. he made many friends, which he has kept with him. my father, of real life, has passed away on august 30th 2005. i hope his memory and good deeds will be remembered by all of yall....he was a touching man in uo and in life. always up for helping and improving... [...] i hope that uo.com uovault.com and uostratics.com could by some way post this message and allow the community to know.... it would have meant a great deal to my father ... thank you so much, curtis [...] [/ QUOTE ] Our deepest sympathy goes out to you, Curtis, and to all your family. The UO Community is truely lessened by the loss of your father.
