But he was someone that I used to read on the Idol Friends page all the time - someone who was a member of the community since around Season 3 or 4.
He didn't vote every week. But I'd see his name at least a couple times a season and always at the the last couple rounds.
If you've been around Livejournal for any length of time, you know who Hugh Casey is. You know what a loss this is to the entire LJ community.
I wish I'd gotten to know him better. I know there are a lot of folks out there in Idol who did know him, who are his friends. I'm really sorry for your loss.
