Reading so many people saying how they feel awkward about getting sad or crying over ryan because they never met him, don't.
There are a lot of people that you've met that you don't know half as well as Ryan. Our lives will go on and certainly none of us are affected in the way any of the Giant Bomb crew, his family, or his friends are, but it doesn't make what you feel less valid.
Let it out, duders. Just don't forget that he would still want to be making people smile.
