In remembrance (in Off-topic)
My apologies for the abrupt and public nature of this news, but in the spirit of our community .... Some of us have recently heard from a cousin of long-time CB member Dolphin. Sadly, Dolphin suffered a fatal heart attack in November.
Marta remembered that Dolphin was a beloved member of our little tribe and has asked to know more about his time & involvement here.
While many of you will remember him for Xanas, some of us recall him as a wonderful clanmate and friend. While he had not stopped in for quite some time, Dolphin was a grizzled veteran from CB1 and was with us for years.
Please pass this news along to the wayward 'Blenderians with whom you remain in contact, inviting them to post as well.
My favorite Dolphin post:

:( Thanks for letting us know.
wow that some sad news. RIP Xanas
Is his username supposed to be a DNA reference? My condolences to all those affected by his passing.
Our thoughts are with Dolphins family at this sad time.
Oh no. That's sad. He was a lovely guy. There were only a few of us who would be logged in morning times on the European side of things and Dolphin was one of us.
*raises a glass in memory*
That's really sad news, I liked the guy. Too young...
Quite a shame, never met the guy but I've met Xanas in combat quite a few times. Sad to hear that :(
I received a chat mail from Marta about this on May 7th. It did not include many details, but I was in China at the time and couldn't do much. Thanks for taking the lead, Bast.
Would anyone like to volunteer to make a wiki page for him?

I am the Dolphin's cousin. I only want to thank you for your writings.
I love your favorite post, Bast. Thank you.
I am very pleased knowing that he was loved here too.
Thank you kindly,

I'm sorry to hear this....I truly am. :(
Oh man, I miss Xanas... my condolences to those that personally knew him and his family.
Such sad news to log into
Marta, in case it's not clear, Xanas is the name of one of the characters that Dolphin played on here.
That's really sad, and it scares me to think that I'm also 35. :( I don't know him very well but I would send his family condolences.
The good die young...maybe far too young.
I'll be keeping Dolphin's family in my prayers.
I'm dumb. I worked with Dolphin on CB previously. OMG That is terrible! :(
