I guess it's been nine years

"The Autumn, she's been hit!"

Time flies. Nine years ago today, this awesome community lost one of our own to a form of cancer called Ewing's Sarcoma, and it's become a bit of a tradition for old codgers like myself to come out of the woodwork and remember him briefly. Personally I always try and tell someone of his story on this day.

Brian Morden, or *Ar-Isildur, was with the Bungie community for ages. A dedicated Myth player, and in fact one of the first people I ever played Myth with; a member of the renowned WolfPack; and most importantly one of the nicest people you've ever met. He was always upbeat, even when he was undergoing treatments for his cancer, and he had an infectious smile. He'd post a picture grinning stupidly at the camera and you couldn't help but grin.

He was also one of the first people that Bungie took on for the Make a Wish program, and famously recorded a line for Halo 1. There's never been anyone as deserving as him.

Anyway, it's doubtful many people will see this, but those of you who do go and check out the foundation set up in his name by his family.

Also, you may have noticed his "HTML guide" linked at the top of the forum for the last DECADE. Check it out.

We're thinking of you Brian. <3

I work here now!
