Generally the expression "family emergency" has no good overtones. I've had to say it a few times and those were rough days. I don't use twitter and just wanted to start this thread to wish Jeff and family well over the coming days.
Hope everything turns out well
Sincerely hope everything turns out well, Jeff. Am also doubly glad that he made the decision to disclose it, as I feel like that's a positive development in terms of keeping in touch with, and keeping informed, the community you've created. We're all hoping for the best.
It goes without saying that every Duder and Giant Bomber in this community consider the people who we let in our homes through our computers, Jeff, Ryan, Brad, Vinny, etc., as a part of our family. Some of us have been here since the beginning, knowing this website was something special. While others have joined after seeing the passion and dedication that the Whiskey family has always put into giving us entertainment and a place to go to when we need to unwind and laugh a little.
From our family to yours Jeff, we love you and we got your back through thick and thin. Hope all goes well.
Not a great time for me either right now, not gonna spurt out the same clichés I've been getting for the last few days 'cause I know they mean nothing from the wrong people. All I'll say is take as long as is needed Jeff, the internet will still be here when you return.
I feel like it's inappropriate to make a thread like this if you have no idea what the emergency is.
Sort of this but he wouldn't have posted it on Twitter if he didn't think we should know.
@H2Oyea: While that may be the case, the staff of Giant Bomb and the Whiskey Media family have become close to its users and its users to each other. We see insights to their lives outside of what they write in their editorials or through reviewing games and grow familiar with them even if we do not know them 'in real life'. For this reason it would only I think that it would only be polite to offer any support or well wishes that we can give in any emergency to just about anybody on Giant Bomb.
