I hate this. I hate having to write posts like these, but this one in particular just sucks so much. As many of you know, Arwen “Spliff” Rosa was in a tragic accident earlier in the year. Yesterday Spliff passed away after his lungs collapsed. Arwen’s wife Jill was able to get to the hospital to say farewell to her partner, before he finally succumbed to the injuries of the accident. I wish that I had the opportunity to meet him, as his presence can be felt throughout the entire suspension community. He was filled with so much positivity and love that he passed on to all those he knew. Today is a sad day because we’ve lost someone truly special, but we should also remember all the good that he was able to accomplish in his too short time with us. In the coming days Hooklife will be setting up a memorial page for those who wish to pass on their memories of Arwen. A donation page will also be established for those who wish to help out Jill and their beautiful daughter Odessa, who will sadly grow up without her father.
Rest in peace Arwen.
