The elephant in the room has taken his own life. He was suffering from clinical depression. He was extremely self-conscious, thinking that he makes others uncomfortable. He was always confused about people's true feelings towards him and he never understood his own place in this world.
Sometimes people ignored him and sometimes he was the talk of the room either way no one ever really saw him anyhow. Now though I suppose people won't know what to do without this gentle beast being there but he will always be my big elephant friend being quieter than the world needed him to be.
