Difficulty: 0

Hey Eddheads, we have some bad news.

On the morning of Sunday 25th March 2012, Edd Gould passed away after a six year long

battle with cancer.

Edd was taken into hospital with a fever, but was very weak from the fight and his body just gave up.

His mind however was so far from ready to quit. He really had no idea this was the end

of his fight and so he left us without any fear. He wasn't afraid at all.

Edd always just saw this as an inconvenience, something that got in the way of what he really

loved to do and that was making animations for all of you.

It's sounds cliche, but it's really all Edd cared about. We watched him turn down a lot

of business opportunities, work and even the chance to have a TV show a couple of times

because he knew it would a wedge between him, you and the show. I won't go into the future

of Eddsworld right now, but what I can tell you is that Edd left behind the first half

of the next Eddisode, a two-parter. And what I can promise you is that and the second half.

We've been overwhelmed with the amount of support Edd received online and through the

mail, on YouTube, Facebook, Twitter and especially Tumblr, Deviantart, Vokle, Newgrounds, B3TA

and the Eddsworld Forums. The list just goes on it's been amazing.

We the friends and family of Edd would like to take this moment to thank you for keeping

him company and keeping him strong for all the months he spent in hospital. Thank you.

His legacy though will live on. Through the hours of animation he's created, the thousands

of people he's inspired and befriended. Including us.

Edd may be gone, but his world will keep on spinning.
