That's horrible. My condolences to you and your family, Patrick.
I've never had the misfortune of dealing with a close family member's death, and I dread the day I will. Patrick, I bet you have the strength that I sure as hell know that I don't. Remember that the community loves you. Even if some in the community hate you? They still love to hate you.
Condolences. Hang in there and keep bringing your weird niche interests to this site, and remember to keep hitting that streak you have at being confrontational with the rest of the crew in video game conversations.
Man, this is terrible. Just before his wedding, too, and right after thinking to myself last night, while watching the hilarious RE Chronicles Collection QL, that Patrick has really come into his own as a staff member of this site, and is actually a quite funny and fitting member of the crew now. Sorry for your loss, Tricky.
My heart goes out to Patrick. Losing a loved one, especially a parent, is such a long process of grief, but I am certain Patrick will be able to handle it and become an even better man through the process. I pray for peace and rest in this most trying of times.
