So sad. After video-game journalist Ryan passed away less than a week after his wedding, his heartbroken widow took to Twitter to honor his memory.
When Ryan Davis, former GameSpot editor and co-founder of Giant Bomb, died July 3 at age 34, video game industry analysts, game enthusiasts, journalists and games publishers took to Twitter to express their sense of loss. But no tweets were as touching or heartbreaking as those of Ryan’s widow, Anna Davis, who he married less than a week before his death.
