• Sad News - Gregg Somes - Mortifis

    From Nelgin@VERT/EOTLBBS to DOVE-Net.General on Mon Jul 12 20:27:42 2021
    It's with a heavy heart that I have to pass along the news that Gregg Somes, known as Mortifis, passed away last Friday after a battle with cancer, his
    wife confirms.

    Mortifis was the sysop of AlleyCat! BBS (1:249/110) and recently curated a museum of old
    Synchronet releases and contributed much to the Sychronet community.

    Gregg will be missed by many and may he rest in peace.

    Condolences to the family. Is there any way to pass word on to them?

    Sorry to see another one of us pass on.

    Gregg (a.k.a. Bernie) was a Synchronet sysop since at least 1994 and a staunch supporter. He's been active in #synchronet on irc.synchro.net for several years and maintained an excellent wit and self-deprecating sense of humor through-out his cancer battle. I hope you're having a pleasant ride, friend. You will be missed.

    My condolences to the family. It's always a shame when we lose a member of
    our online family, even moreso one from a bbs family.

    I am new to BBSes but I definitely recognise the name and have had interactions with Mortifis. So sad to hear... RIP Gregg.

    Who was asking you to repeat them again? (clue: very redundant).
