Badogg and I come to you this evening with some bad new regarding our friend Cose- his mother contacted us today. As many of you know, Cose had fallen ill over the last few weeks. Well, sadly, he passed this Saturday at 1240. He had been in the ICU since July 13. He wa diagnosed with a rare liver condition, Wilson’s disease, a genetic mutation passed down from parents. It starts with a personality change, and proceeds to severe panic attacks, and finally seizures. He was diagnosed on Aug 2.

Badogg had a conversation with him on Friday, I’ll let him give details, but the tl/dr is that he wasn’t coherent and seemed to know the end was coming sooner rather than later.

I don’t have any other information, and I’m not going to press his mother for anything, as her loss is greater than ours, but I did let her know to contact Badogg or I if there’s anything we can do.

:cheers: Cose. See ya on the other side, brother. :(

Yeah, when he called me it was Saturday at 7:34pm.  I couldn't really make out anything he was saying.  I thought I picked up something like "End of the road".  He just sounded really bad.  I finally had to say "Chris, I'm really sorry but I am having a real hard time understanding you".  His reply was "I'm sorry" and hung up.  It felt like a goodbye call but I didn't allow myself to really accept that.  His mom said that I was the only person he tried to reach out to, I really wish I wouldn't have known how dire the situation was and could have been there for him.

Thanks for sharing. :(

I'm not much of a believer in things outside of this life any more, but I'm happy to be proven wrong if I can get another chance at shots with cose.

His mother is honoring his request for no death notice or obit. He will cremated with no service.

She asked to pass on info on Wilson’s disease: https://www.mayoclin...es/syc-20353251 If this seems like a thing to you, go see a doctor. Cose is one too many to succumb to this disease.

So yeah, he was a friend to many around here, and I know a lot of us were like an extended family to him.  So condolences to all of you.  :cheers:  :crybaby:

He was one of the few people I could just call when I was having a shitty day. We talked maybe once a month or so, and shot texts back and forth regularly, and I knew *something* was going on, but I had no idea I’d be getting a text from his mom saying he was gone.

I’m going to leave this here. In case anyone is so inclined.
Doesn’t sound he would have wanted anything done in his name.... but that doesn’t mean it won’t make a difference for someone else.

Damn, that sucks. I had mostly given him his space since he got sick, I reached out about a week ago and never heard back. I was hoping it wasn't going this way but was worried. I am going to miss you buddy :(

His mom just told me that he made some t-shirts for his anticipated cross country last year. They said “Humperdink Cose to Coast 2017”. He obviouslyy never made the trip (doubt the board would have survived that) but he requested to be cremated in in one.

From his mom: He wanted me to make sure you knew how much many of you meant to him. (AND, then some, not so much!)

Typical Cose.
