So sorry to hear this. I can't imagine what you and your family are going through, but if there's any way we can help you, we will.

Gutted.
Hard to imagine I would one day feel emotions like this for people I've only interfaced with online, but stick around for a decade or so and it seems a sense of kinship can can actually form.

Sending vibes of peace for you and your family.

There will be a touch of F:AT at the funeral which I am secretly pleased about. One of the pieces of music we will use is Young Wonder's "To You" which came into our house from one of the articles here (I think both MattDP and Barnes went through a phase where they used to post the pop culture they had been exploring during the previous week as well as the boardgames).

That was me, I'm pretty sure. Reading that broke me up a little, and listening to the song broke me up a little more. It's a fine and fitting choice, and I hope it brings you strength at such a terrible time.

You honestly have no idea how appropriate the song is, so I am really grateful to you Matt. I always thought it was about saying goodbye to a loved one and only after I made the call for including it and for the first time truly listening to it without the video did I realise that it is sung from the perspective of the dying person and the symptoms she describes my wife had (pain in her ribs; my wife had cancer in her ribs which fractured them, numb hands; my wife's chemotherapy caused her to lose most sensation in her hands and feet).

I now really tear up every time it plays.
