Rest In Peace, Reckful.
What a terrible tragedy. You can tell he meant so much to so many people.
If you are having suicidal thoughts, then please speak to a trusted friend/family member or a professional.
I can’t stress this enough: life gets better. I promise.

This is one of my fav clips of Reckful. He started talking to a psychiatrist on stream to help other depressed viewers, and to motivate them to seek actual help irl.
They were talking about finding purpose and meaning in life, cause Byron has been suicidal for years. pic.twitter.com/0oQ7rvymWQ

Seeing thousands and thousands of people flooding the cathedral in Stormwind kneeling, paying respect to Reckful, and sharing their stories of how much he meant to them.
The gaming community comes together in the most beautiful ways
