Fellow members of SHIELD: Rat Division,

We regret to inform you that Special Agent Oleksii has retired from service. Bureau C (Archives, Documents, and Nest Paper) is still adjusting to the loss of its most experienced agent.

His departure was sudden; he had what was likely a stroke, possibly a brain bleed of some other kind, around 6:30pm. 15-20 minutes later, he turned in his clipboard and badge. Special Agents Lynda and Dolly gave him a goodbye groom.

Oleksii was a sweet, gentle boy with a sense of humour. He loved packing paper, dairy-free coconut dessert, pea fishing, pink bamboo finger traps, corn, and his ladies. The one good thing about him passing before the ladies is that, after a rough start that saw him lose everyone and everything he'd ever known, from the time he met Lynda and Dolly, he has never known loss or loneliness. He wasn't a huge fan of being cuddled, but he loved a good sleeve to hang out in. Heavier-grade paper was his specialty. The ladies move a lot of tissue paper, but Oleksii preferred phone book, packing paper, and torn up paper pharmacy bags.

In April, he was diagnosed with the possible onset of a pituitary mass. He was developing hind-end paralysis, eating with one hand, and had a slight head tilt. With the exception of the hind-end paralysis, his symptoms had not become noticeably worse between then and now. The stroke was a surprise.

Oleksii was a wonderful agent, an excellent archivist, and a dear friend. He was much loved, and will be greatly missed.

I'm so sorry for your loss. No doubt Special Agent Oleksii was assigned to an elite division over the Rainbow Bridge, where he will continue to serve with great distinction.
