Indefinite break from FUMBBL, personal tragedy.
Hey everyone, Bluegill here. I know I've already been on the down low from Blood Bowl burnout as it is but now the wind has been taken out of my sails for good.

Earlier this week my brother and his wife lost their 5 month old son while they were on vacation. He went to sleep and never woke up.

It's been a rough tragedy for us all to bear right now. A close friend of theirs has posted a link to a go fund me page to help pay for funeral costs. Any and all donations are appreciated so if anyone here would be willing to help them we'd be truly grateful.

https://www.gofundme.com/f/weins-family-funeral-fund?utm_source=facebook&utm_medium=social&utm_campaign=p_cp+share-sheet&fbclid=IwAR1fmeJ8dyJvvZjJBd6Ui58Jp3mjqb45vsqq6ii4II7Y2uMppK2n5LVQZAA

As for me...well I'm calling it quits for FUMBBL at this time to grieve and get my own life sorted out. I'm sure I will find my way back here someday but I gotta cut the scheduled play until this broken time in our lives is fixed. CIBBL's Autumn may see me return but...I make no promises.

Take care everyone, and stay safe out there.

Wow, that is tragic in a way that hits hard as hell. I hope you and yours get through this, but I am not sure how, but it will happen. Godspeed

I feel these things so strongly now that I have 9 month old son of my own.

Hang on.

Yes, since I have kids I feel even more sensitive to these. All the best to you and your brother, this is a heartbreaking story. Donation made.

Appreciate the donations guys, thank you so much. We said our final goodbyes today and though it's been tough, their family is holding on.

Take care of your family and hope you come back if and when you feel like it again.
