Personal announcement, and a request
Dear FastLED friends,
About a week ago, @Daniel_Garcia and I lost a close and beloved family member, without warning, at age 40. We are devastated.
Many people who have known have reached out to ask how they can help offer support in this terrible time, and we’re blessed to have so much love and support in our lives.
While Dan and I are trying to make sense of any of this, and grieve, I’d like to ask that you, the good people of the FastLED community, help us by helping each other a little bit extra while we step away for a bit. I love how much the members of this community have always helped and supported each other, and all I ask now is that you keep doing exactly that: support each other. Be helpful, and patient, and playful, and warm. Dan and I are still ‘here’, but right now we need to ask the rest of the community to take care of each other while we step away to handle our terribly sad loss.
Thank you for understanding and sympathy, and for helping each other so much, as you always have. And today, right now, reach out to someone you haven’t spoken to in a while, and tell them you love them.

I am so very sorry for your loss. You are both in my thoughts. We’ll keep the lights on for you while you grieve.

my condolonces to you two. and thank you again for all your amazing work here and on fastled; helping us shine vibrant light on this absurdity called life. greetings from istanbul.
