I can't help but smile. Monty isn't dead. Somebody, please explain how he could be dead. His work is still around. Monty Oum worked with RvB and made RWBY. His work lives, and as long as we keep remembering that, Monty lives. Monty Oum lives. I hate to end this with a hashtag, but I must. #MontyLives

RIP Monty. Before I watched what you made, I already planned to make some stories and then make them into anime and games, but when I started watching what you made like Dead Fantasy and RWBY, it inspired me much, much more. I thank you for all that you've done, and I hope you rest in peace.

To anyone that reads this: This is a message to every fan of Monty Oum. I'm sure you all know, but if you haven't heard, Monty Oum has passed away. I'm sad that he is gone, and I'm thankful for all he's done and made. He's inspired us all in a way, and we as his fans must never forget him, and never let his legacy die. I hate to rip off another day, but I feel as a fan we need to make this day to honor Monty Oum. I would to decree that on June 22, the very day he was born, that it'll be known as "Monty Oum Day" or "Monty Oum Appreciation Day!" Long live the legacy of Monty Oum!

RIP, Monty. You were a huge inspiration, and we all miss you, even though I actually kind of got into you the day before you passed (my birthday!) and I still think you left too soon.

To anyone who reads this and is crying, don't...... Man am I being a hypocrite... We miss you Monty. But, just remember these three words "Keep moving forward." - Monty Oum (1981-2015)

Requiescat in Pacem, Monty Oum. Your art has inspired me--your work through RWBY has given people the hope in reaching their dreams. Though that your body and soul has gone from this world the legacy and memory of those around you from Rooster Teeth in your partake in them will never be forgotten for generations to come. I am currently making a momentum in the honor of this great lost to the community and Rooster Teeth. When it is finished I hope everyone will like it.

Dear M.O. I am sorry to learn of you after your passing. I learned of your hard work ethic, in not wasting a minute in life and I read your thoughts regarding your mother's death and it all has been very inspiring and motivating. I hope you are in a good place where you can still use your creativity and continue to make a difference. We love you and miss you. Bye for now. <3

Hope you've accepted Christ and that that's where you are. By his side, and no longer suffering to disease or grief or frailty.

Please don't defile the memory of the deceased by using their death to promote your imaginary friend. It's exceedingly disrespectful and disgusting.

Jesus, some people are so easily offended when it comes to religion nowadays. The 'accepting Jesus' part was in unnecessary, but the rest was just fine. How dare someone in the modern day still follow a religion. How dare they see the good parts of their religion. How dare they wish hope someone is in a better place, in their own view of the after life.

You are worst than the original poster by calling Jesus an 'imaginary friend'. Atheists can be atheists all they like, it's your beliefs, but that gives you no right to shit on those of another person. I know a few, good tolerant ones, who don't give a fuck what others believe, but the vast majority are like you - arseholes. Whereas, from what I've seen, there are more good religious people than bad, such as myself.

Finally, one can be religious and follow science and logic. Again, I am such.

I'm sorry if you take this as hostile, but I'm not trying to be.

P.S.: I hope Monty is in heaven.

I wish him to be in Valhalla.

I mean: Valkyries, rivers beer, roasted deer and fights. WAY better than haarps, fluffy clouds and asexual angels... :XD:

Been what feels like ages since I got to this site. Monty - I have been a watcher since your first piece of art on this site. Everything you brought into the world of art and imagination has inspired millions and millions more to come. Rest in peace brother, the entire world will always remember your name and your work.
