    Been at this for days, half not being able to accept this and half hoping that it's all a mistake, sadly we lost one of the best members this site has ever had and one of the most dedicated moderators around.

    If you have ever posted in a play by play fight night thread, you've experienced the tireless work he did for the forums and as it is a volunteer position, he did it for love of this place and the community contained within and for that he will be greatly missed.

    On a personal note, I come across a lot of folks on this site and it's rare to find someone who is genuine and someone you can truly call a friend and I will greatly miss the hours and hours of conversations we've had and lament the loss of conversations we will never have.

    Sho had more than a few health issues in recent years and despite whatever turmoil he had in his personal life, he still found his way here....to this online group of random people from all different countries and walks of life, and to the community he loved and depended on for support and to take his mind off his troubles.


    I am being selfish and missing my friend for the loss that I will have, as will many others, but when you are remembering Shonuf and missing him, please stop and give a prayer to his "real life" friends and family as if he can make this kind of an impact here, I can only imagine the loss they must be feeling.

    Goodbye my friend, I'm not a religions guy but this once...I hope for a heaven as you deserve one.

    Rest in peace brother.

    Just please don't

    Shocking and sad news. I never personally interacted with him much but his presence was more than felt on this forum. RIP

    Another good guy down :(

    Wow

    Always liked him as a poster and the threads he made on fight day

    Probably why an old comment of mine got deleted when he wasn't on for a while and i posted it but i didn't know his situation

    RIP

    Geez. Didn't interact with him much on the forums, but he always seemed like one of the cooler, more level headed mods. Condolences to all who knew him.
