I don't know where to begin. I got a text message from Adam this morning saying that I had to check the site right away. My first instinct was maybe we had another funny profile submission, or there was a disagreement of some sort. I never expected this. For the last few hours I've been sitting here trying to think of how to describe my feelings on this, so bear with me while I try.

As I think most of you know, Jerred and I were excellent friends. Him, Aaron and Dodd combined to give me 3 of the best friends I could ask for. Jerred was one of the best people I've never met in person. From the time he joined in V3, I had an instant connection with him both in writing and outside of the site. Arch and I would constantly try and one-up each other on Rock Band 2, shoot the shit about music, women, booze. He was one of the very few genuine people I know in my life. What you see is what you get with him and I always respected him for that. He was always able to cheer someone up when needed. He was a great moderator in that he was fair to everyone every single time he did a critique.

I think we all know how awesome Arch is. His quips and one-liners in the Chatzy made for some of the funniest moments I've ever laid witness to. From the crowning of "The Arch" and "The Dan", to he and Adam's (Pigeon Army) Sales Masters, even to the Guillen family slang that we all became accustomed to. Heck, I fondly remember the night that he came back from a concert and joined the chatzy. He said, "Dan you'll be proud of me, then not so proud of me." I inquired with a "Go on..." Jerred then revealed that he taken my tips for approaching girls and had made out with a girl at the concert. It was then hilariously revealed that he was 15, leading to many Mimi jokes and ribs that he participated in. That in itself reveals that Jerred was a great person. It takes a great person to be able to laugh at themselves the way Arch did.

From a writing perspective I believe that Arch produced some of the most memorable and pure quality writing on this site. I feel honoured that I was able to RP the scene between Eddie and Riz with him. I really do.

My best wishes go out to the entire Guillen family. If there is anything at all that I can do for you guys please let me know.

Jerred "Arch" Guillen. He was my friend. He was my Mexican Brother. He was a damn great person. Remember him for that.

I hope you find the peace you needed.
