MATT: Hey Eddheads. (pause) We have some bad news.

TOM: On the morning of Sunday, 25 March, 2012, Edd Gould passed away after a six-year long battle with cancer.

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

TOM: His mind, however, was so far from ready to quit. He really had no idea this was the end of his fight, so he left us without any fear. He wasn't afraid at all.

MATT: Edd always just saw this as an inconvenience, something that got in the way of him doing what he really loved to do. And that was making animations for all of you.

TOM: It sounds cliched, but that'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 drive away from him, you, and the show. We 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). What I can promise you is that and the second half.

MATT: We've been overwhelmed by the amount of support Edd received online and through the mail. On YouTube, Facebook, Twitter, especially Tumblr, deviantART, Vokle, Newgrounds, B3ta, even the Eddsworld Forums. The list just goes on. It's been...amazing.

TOM: 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's been in hospital. Thank you.

MATT: His legacy, though, will live. Through the hours of animation he's created and the thousands of people he's inspired and befriended...including us.

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