I alternate between blubbering laughter and shuddering tears. I almost met Ryan at PAX Prime a few years back. He seemed busy and I was a little star struck, so I decided to not intrude. I have spent hundreds of hours listening to, reading and enjoying the man Ryan was. Many others have said it better than I can, but somehow, despite it being one-sided, I feel I have lost a friend. It is hard to understand, much less explain, but the loss is real. Thank you Ryan for sharing yourself, your love for life and all the Dumb. My thoughts are with his family and friends, my deepest condolences to you. Thanks Ryan.
