Just thought I would let you guys know that I wont be around for at least the next couple of weeks. I just found out one of my dearest friends is dying of lung cancer and has been told he has very little time left to live. So I'm going to Darwin to spend some quality time with him. I will resume normal duties upon my return.
You're a good soul, GameJunkie. Be with your friend, make some memories and help him live for the rest of his days. I do not envy your task, for it is difficult to see someone succumb to this disease - I know this first hand. It is a sad time, but you'll make a difference - he won't be alone or abandoned, and he'll have a great friend like you to help him smile a little as his time grows near.
My heart and prayers go out to both of you. Stay strong - and if possible, give him the time of his life.
We'll be here - but he needs you a lot more than we do. When you're ready, you'll be back. Until then, know that we do care, and we hope that in the end, it was as peaceful and painless as possible for everyone.
