On Sunday, June 4, 2006, James Wendle Simpkins II, otherwise known as Nimda, passed away.

I don't know the full details of why he did it, but it was apparently suicide. He hung himself.

He was both a member of Las Vegas Hackers Club and The SourceCode, and I considered him to be a friend and part of my online family.

I am not going to make him out to be a saint, because he wasn't, but he seemed to be trying very hard to get his life together and go in the right direction. I don't know what went wrong.

He left behind a fiancee and 2 young children.

Funeral will be held tomorrow at

Estes Funeral Home Inc

I don't know what else to say...I am at a loss for words.
