Ryan Davis was my friend

I never met Ryan in person. I never sat with him in the car on his way home from a long day at Giant Bomb. He never confided in me any personal facts. I wasn't invited to his wedding.

Despite all this, I consider Ryan Davis to be a good friend. Someone just asked me why I was tearing up, and I simply replied, "a good friend of mine just passed away" without hesitation. I may not have ever "met" Ryan, but you can't listen to a man's voice, his laugh, his yells for more then a decade and not somehow be attached to him. I'm pretty sure the vast majority of this community feels the same way. The world is a little less funny, and a whole lot less bright on this day. Rest in peace my friend. My thoughts are with you, always.
