In Memory of Charles "Mask" Lewis

We at MMAagents lost a teammate and a friend yesterday in the tragic accident that took the life of Tapout co-founder Charles “Mask” Lewis.

In the tradition of all professional sports, our athletes will place the name “Mask” on their fight attire in remembrance of this true pioneer of our sport.

Charles was an inspiration to anyone that had ambition, focus, and an undeterred hunger for success. With heavy hearts, we mourn his passing.

“Life is full of influences; it’s your application that sets you apart” – Charles “MASK” Lewis

This is a prayer that my family shares at times of loss. I just wanted to share it with the TAPOUT family. I thought this reflects Mask's outlook on life. Many Blessings and Much Love to all of you.
Brother Mask, you will be missed but always remembered.

An Irish Funeral Prayer

Death is nothing at all.
It does not count.
I have only slipped away into the next room.
Everything remains as it was.
The old life that we lived so fondly together is untouched, unchanged.
Whatever we were to each other, that we are still.
Call me by the old familiar name.
Speak of me in the easy way which you always used.
Put no sorrow in your tone.
Laugh as we always laughed at the little jokes that we enjoyed together.
Play, smile, think of me, pray for me.
Let my name be ever the household word that it always was.
Let it be spoken without effort
Life means all that it ever meant. It is the same as it ever was.
There is unbroken continuity.
Why should I be out of mind because I am out of sight?
I am but waiting for you, for an interval, somewhere very near, just around the corner.
All is well. Nothing is hurt; nothing is lost.
One brief moment and all will be as it was before.
How we shall laugh at the trouble of parting, when we meet again.
