It is with great sadness that I have to post that the BME community has lost an awesome, funny, brilliant and kind member. Last night, Adam Aries passed away in his sleep. Adam was like a brother to many. He touched hundreds if not thousands of people through his work with RoP as well as being a body piercer. Unfortunately we do not have any more details other than what I have posted. Please see the update at the bottom of the post regarding services.
He will be missed.
March 24th Update:
Services for Adam will be held this Saturday March 26th. 1pm-3pm and 5pm-8pm
They will be held at the Davis Funeral Home: 1 Lock St. Nashua, NH 03064
In addition where will also be a party held at ZuZu (where Adam worked) on April 2nd from 12pm to 4pm.
ZuZu is located on 474 Massachusetts Ave. Cambridge, MA 02139
I’m very sad to have to post that Melissa passed away. If you ever posted about having a rough time on your IAM page then chances are pretty good that Melissa sent you a message to make sure you were okay. Not only is she Jeff‘s mom but she took that role pretty seriously. She was always around to give advice, an ear to listen and a shoulder to lean on to anyone and everyone who needed it.
I am very sad to report that Matt Luvpain (July 24, 1976 – June 11, 2007) passed away in his sleep on Monday from natural causes, and attempts to resuscitate him failed. Matt was a friend, an extremely modified individual who was one of BME’s most prolific contributors, and one of the Eunuch Archive moderators. This comes as a very unpleasant and upsetting surprise to myself and the multitude of people he touched. Matt will be greatly missed by his many friends and family.
