A Death in the (Gaming) Family

It has been a very difficult day for me today, as well as for the Friday night gaming group.

When I woke up this morning, I learned from Stephanie, DavidM's wife, that DavidM had died at 3:45 am this morning of congestive heart failure as a complication/consequence of his having a very severe case of the flu that's going around. David had been ill for over two weeks now, and had progressively got worse to the point where he'd been admitted to the hospital a week ago today. I'm saddened by his loss, and can't even begin to imagine or feel how his wife and family are right now.

I've been sort of dysfunctional for most of the day, in a state of shock for the most part (I guess), and haven't really accomplished anything at all today other than a bit of banking and grocery shopping I needed to get done.

I'd been gaming with DavidM for several years now, and had come to really like him. His personality was sparkling, he loved his wife and two children, ages 14 and 19, fiercely, and enjoyed what he did for a living. His loss leaves a terrible void in the lives of both his family and his friends, and I still can't believe he's gone.

A tragedy. A horrible day for all concerned.
