On the 4th of June I got the the sad news that my dear friend Davidbur had passed away. I meet this friend of mine when I was playing Wurm, I was travelling on Desertion and offering service, I wanted to meet new people and do something different. I started to help out Davidburs mayor, Caiji and thru her I also meet Davidbur. We all three started to chat and enjoy our time together in Wurm. I stayed with them for few weeks and got to know them. I then finished helping them and started to help someone else and few weeks later I returned to my deed and always kept in contact with David and Caiji. Later Caiji took a break from Wurm and I ended on inviting David to my village witch he accepted and I was very glad for that also because I knew he was active in Wurm like I was and it had started to become little boring to be mostly alone at my deed.
I have many good things to say about Davidbur, he was a true friend and always willing to help others, people didn't need to ask David for help he just heard someone was doing something and came to help if it was surface mining, digging tons of dirt, making bunch of bricks or what ever he was the one that was the first to arrive. I often saw someone ask for bricks or mortar for projects and I recommended David for the job, both because I knew he wanted some silver but far more important I knew he would make the delivery most often in time and he had very good reputation in doing so. For me David was rough on the outside but like silk on the inside, at least that is what I experienced from many of our talks. We could talk a lot or just throw on or two lines between each other while we where playing. I also learned from our talks that David was also like this in RL, he seemed always to be ready to give a hand, take his mother for a Sunday shopping or whatever else it was.
I often made kindly fun of David also, he surely was a hoarder, at least in game he was. When I decided to disband my deed after David took a few months break from Wurm for some private reasons I moved all his stuff, and he had chest upon chests of tools or iron bars or 50 small axe heads or 40 knife blades. I think I am not kidding when I say that it was three trips just his stuff with a Knarr. Worst thing also was he had no idea where all his stuff was, he asked me once to sort his stuff after quality in bsbs, I think it maybe lasted a week.
But David was someone who was nice to be around, we sometimes had little arguments but they never lasted more than few hours. I learned to appreciate his friendship and I am proud that I could call him a friend, even though I have never meet him face to face and we live far away from each other. He was a good friend that I will miss so very much from this game, it was a very shocking moment to learn this news from his brother Floydg that he had passed away the 3rd of june from a hearth attack way to young, before he even reached 50 years old. My sincere condolences to his family and friends, I ask God to bless his memory and give strength to his friends and family.
