I'll just post this here. I drank last night with some of my best friends who came into town and I got a little drunk. Anyways, I thought I was upside of grieving Ryan. I wasn't. We were getting ready to call it a night and I just had to tell him, the other friend had took off, about Ryan. There wasn't anyone I could really talk to about it before or at least that I felt comfortable doing.

Anyways, I basically completely broke down. That's the first time that's happened to me in a long time and probably the first time I cried in front of someone else since I was a little kid. I realized it was because the Bomb Crew had always been there for me for the last 5 or so years. I moved schools about the time Giant bomb started and it took me a long time to make friends.

I hated everything about the week during the school years and all I ever looked forward to was playing games at home on the weekends. When I found the Bombcast it gave me something to look forward to during the week and it wasn't all bad. TANG and the P4 endurance runs helped as well when those were happening, but Giant Bomb as a whole made my life a lot better when I really felt alone that year or two.

Losing a part of the team is crushing in such a weird way. It was just nice to share what happened with someone I actually know. Reading the forums and seeing all the great videos of Ryan has also helped. The alcohol probably made more emotional than I should have been last night, but it was good to let it all out.

RIP Ryan Davis. You will forever have a place in all our hearts.

I've been on this site since the beginning and never really felt like part of the community but the past few days seem to have really brought everyone together.

Right on. This was one of my bona fide thoughts during the last few days (and I'm an atheist, fer Pete's sake).

I know exactly what you mean. It is times like these I wish for a beyond, some sort of god. Not only to bring myself peace, but to hope that the one who is lost as also at peace as well. For as much as I don't want to believe, there are times where I hurt enough to believe.

Well said. It feels like so long since we found out about his death, but it is still really hard for this to all hit home.

Well said sir, I got teared up but then chuckled when you reminded me of the cake sitting. *sigh* He truly was one of a kind...

Being an atheist doesn't mean you don't want there to be a heaven, just that you don't believe there is.

It's crazy to think that Ryan Davis was more active in my day to day than most of my own family members! Man, I'm going to miss him.

You fuckers keep making me want to cry.

I just can't process this. Everytime I think about it, my chest starts hurting. I still can't believe he's gone.
