A very sad announcement
Site NewsDearest friends of Stargate Alpha...


It is my sad duty to announce, on behalf of his mother Sue, that Nick Jones, our beloved Jack - my co creator of this site, has passed away. He died at 6.30am Tuesday 4th January 2010 at the age of 37.

Nick suffered from a condition called Muscular Dystrophy, which he hid very well from everyone on the net - a medium where he excelled and bought joy to the users of the sites he developed and the cms systems he created. I always teased him, that he was the Stephen Hawking of websites...

Nick's cheery disposition and positive attitude could never fail to lighten a chat room. He was a great kidder too - always teasing people. I personally, will miss him greatly - Stargate Alpha would never have been realised had he not put his technical knowhow and our creativity together to build the site that bought people together. He went on to develop PHP Fusion, which is used the world over on the www for many sites.

Nick's mother has arranged the funeral for Wednesday and I will collect donations for the charity of her choice (in lieu of flowers) - which is for Muscular Dystrophy. If you should wish to send a message to his mother, please do so via myself - universe@stargate-alpha.com and I will forward them onto her by snail mail. To donate, please use the site donation button, do ensure you mark in the instructions that it's for NICK JONES and what your name is, so that his mother knows.

Rest in peace Nick, lil bro - may you now know no boundries by body so you can now soar.

Emma

NIcks favourite song...

Angel lyrics
Songwriters: Mclachlan, Sarah;

Spend all your time waiting
For that second chance
For a break that would make it okay
There's always some reason
To feel not good enough
And it's hard at the end of the day

I need some distraction
Oh beautiful release
Memories seep from my veins
Let me be empty
Oh and weightless and maybe
I'll find some peace tonight

In the arms of the angel
Fly away from here
From this dark cold hotel room
And the endlessness that you fear

You are pulled from the wreckage
Of your silent reverie
You're in the arms of the angel
May you find some comfort here

So tired of the straight line
And everywhere you turn
There's vultures and thieves at your back
The storm keeps on twisting
Keep on building the lies
That you make up for all that you lack

It don't make no difference
Escaping one last time
It's easier to believe
In this sweet madness
Oh this glorious sadness
That brings me to my knees

In the arms of the angel
Fly away from here
From this dark cold hotel room
And the endlessness that you fear

You are pulled from the wreckage
Of your silent reverie
You're in the arms of the angel
May you find some comfort here

You're in the arms of the angel
May you find some comfort here

Nick's loss will be felt among us all. It is because of Nick and Oma's creation of this site that I was reunited with many friends I thought I'd lost after Ryan's site went down. Thank you to both of you for giving us a place to play, for keeping us together with love, laughs and kindness for the last few years.

May the Goddess bring you peace & love Nick, you deserve it. And as a cheeky call back to our last chat a few days ago, Pop a cork for me up there Wink

<Salute>

Love Jai xx

Rest in Peace Nick. You and Emma helped me to make some great friends, and I will always be thankful for that. You will be missed!

REGARDING ANY DONATIONS - PLEASE READ BEFORE MAKING ONE:

Folks, when you click the 'donate' button under where it says 'keep the lights on' you will be taken to Paypal to make the actual donation. Unfortunately, the screen DOESN'T offer any Notes/Details box that you can complete with the info that it's for Nick and we're not entirely sure how to fix it.

SO: If you intend to make a Donation for Nick, may I suggest that you send Oma a Comm, Email or YM with the following info:

Date and amount of your donation
Your Alpha Site ID
The name you used on Paypal when sending the payment (so she can match Donations to Alpha personnel).

For example, my Paypal account is under the name Jai Monroe-Lorne, so its easy for her to spot who my donation is from, whereas if I'd have used my birth name (that I rarely use in RL) she may have been scratching her head in confusion.

Thank you for your time.

Jai (Pesky Admin-Type)

We will miss you Nick. thank you for eveything you've done. You will no doubt keep on doing amazing things on the next plane where limits and boundries will be no more. Spread your wings my friend and fly!!

I greatly wish that I had met Nick in person but Texas is a long way from the UK. I discovered PHP-Fusion CMS on the open source demo site and loved it so well that I ditched all the others I tried. At age 58 (3 yrs ago), it gave me the intense desire to learn php amd mySQL. What a wonderful creation Nick! Farewell kindred spirit and soar high and far.

<from down the hall, the steady, in unison "click...click...click" of dress uniform shoes are heard in step as they approach> <moments later a panther leads a contingent of Air Force officers who are carrying a picture of Nick> <in silence, the officers carrying the picture hang it on the Wall of the Honored Fallen, makes sure it is straight, takes a step back and then slowly salute> <the officers hold the salute for a few moments, disengage the salute, turn and leave>

<the panther remains for a few> Goodbye Nick....may you rest well...may the spirit, being or belief of your reverence keep you and guide you through the Gate....

<lowers head for a moment> <turns and slowly walks out>

Jack (Nick) A wonderful person, amazing human. You will be missed terribly my friend and I am honored that I can say you were a fabulous friend. You will always be in my memories and in my heart - ((Hugs)) and much love to you - RIP my friend.

Thank you Nick for giving all of us a home and a place where we could meet kindred Spirits. The Alpha site is a place were we could talk about our beloved Stargate series, but also chat and reconnect with old an new friends. Without you, Nick, I personally would never have met Emma, would became one if my best friends.
You will be missed more than words can express and will always be remembered fondly.
Farewell, friend, go visit all the places we can only dream of.
Go Love and Light,
- Kira Quest (Jayce)
