I have been an avid BGGer for a coupe of years now, but believe it or not it is really helping me cope with a rather tragic situation right now. And I really apreciate the humor and good naturedness of the BGG community for it.

I found out a couple of days ago that my best friend died; 41 years old - same age as me... basically he brother I never had.

Well redin game reviews, GLs, and such has helped immensely. He was one of the few friends I could count on for a god thought provoking game. Heck, I even had a GL of games I gave to him.

So now he is gone; BGG has been sort of a stand in friend as a sort since he left me.. He was the guy I could call late in the evenign and chat/complain about affairs of state, and all sorts of mundane stuff...

If it weren't for teh quick wit and humor of the BGG community, I am certain this would be much harder than it has been. I visit the site almost daily and when I laugh (especially now) or learn something new - it makes my day...

Thanks!
Paul

Typical of me, I can't type worth #&*$^

I suspect people may be scratching their 'noggins on the original post...

My condolences Paul. That's a tough one but I'm glad you can find humor on BGG to brighten your day.

By the way, I wish I was scratching my noggins. I've heard two heads are better than one.

Paul, I briefly gamed with you at NOVA comics in Virginia before I moved last year. Was the person who passed from that group?

Marshall wasn't me - I have never gamed at a store. My NoVA Gaming groups consists of friends and fellow gaming reservists. My passion rubs off (sort of) on them. This gentleman was a gaming friend, but he lived in Richmond, so we didn't see each other as often. He was the friend I gave some games to in a geeklist I did...

Cheers abd thanks everyone!
Paul

Sorry Paul. I guess it was a different Paul. I've always thought it was you though! Still, glad you could find some relief at BGG.

My condolences to you. Several years ago, I lost a cousin who was two years younger than me. We both had no siblings and grew up almost like brothers, so I know something of your loss. It's good to remember the fun times and move on. Hang in there.
