Ryan sent me this when CBSi Games staff were informed I was coming to the states for a while.
Made me smile then, as it does now.
As a distant fan, I feel privileged to have met him. He really was as hard edged and soft centred as you'd imagine. I have nothing but thanks for him, for being so kind and supportive to me over the years. I mourn the fact that I didn't get to know him well, but really it's a testament to the man that so many feel the loss, when so few had the pleasure of meeting him.
King of the summerjams, best friend to thousands of strangers, may he rest in peace.
