Its been a little crazy around here recently and I just had to get this out. I know I've said this stuff before, but I just feel the need to get it all out there again. This past year has been so difficult for me and family. It definitely wasn't in the plan to be like this. The end of last year my father was diagnosed with cancer and luckily just this past month was declared cancer free. Also back in February, my wife was diagnosed with cancer and continues her battle, but we are winding down on those treatments. 6 more weeks to go. Still a long journey yet, but we are getting there.
So that's the gist of what's going on. I know most of you all know this, so sorry for harping on it. I bring all this up, to get to my main point here. I've made it well known about my love for this place. This place has become my second home and you all are my family, whether you want to be or not. Deal with it :). I just have to say again from the bottom of my heart and my wife's heart, thank you!
Thank you just sounds so hollow and I wish I could say or do more. When people ask me how I'm doing, I tell them really good all things considered. They always ask how I'm doing so well and I tell them Destructoid and video games (mostly Elder Scrolls Online). They always give me that blank stare afterwards, but it's true. You guys are so great at picking me up!
If I miss anyone here, know that I think highly of everyone of you guys and ladies here. If your name isn't there, it's just my awful memory. No slight to anyone as you all have rocked!
First, special thank you to Chris Moyse, Kevlarmonkey, and AdmiralAckbong. You guys have gone out of your way to ask how I'm doing and how the wife is doing. You guys have been such a great support, you have no idea. You're my boo Admiral. The COTW team always makes me and the wife laugh even when it's a shit day. Occams and Wes, you guys always post your support whenever I post about the wife. That stuff really brightens the day. Thanks to DeadMoon, RoboPanda, and all the mods for the job you do and the kind words.
Thank you Angie for all those awesome gifs. Those things never ceases to amaze and make me laugh. Being in your gifs is the pinnacle. They've just been so amazingly helpful. Green Hornet, you and I have such similar tastes and you always take the time to comment and make me laugh.
Thank you to everyone that posts such hilarious stuff. You never stop making me laugh. Raiku, Gaj, Anthony, Blondebass, Shade, Celica, Nakedbigboss, Zombiecorps (we still need to get our comedy tour going), SirCharlesofShred, Mike Sounders, Joel Peterson, Ikiryou, Dr. Mel, Silver Luso, King Kaiser, Inquisitive Ravenclaw, Iam16bit, Indigit, Home of the Blues and to anyone else I missed. Thank you so much and don't ever change. Also I have to thank Dangus and Dennis Carden. They are the main reason I joined and why you guys are stuck with me. Also I have to say, the new guys here have been such a bright spot in some tough times for Guerilla, Bong, and EricWeichart. You guys are awesome and stay crazy!
I love you guys and girls as sappy as that sounds. I hope to never leave, but if I do, know that you will always be my family. Maybe I'll see you all around in real life some time or maybe on Elder Scrolls Online :). Thanks Destructoid, my home away from home.
