Life Goes On, Crickie Island Style!

Today has been a bummer of a day for me. First off, seeing my hand surgeon this morning indicated that nerve damage may be more extensive than I thought. I will be following up with more testing in the coming weeks, which sounds like NO FUN at all! By the time I am allowed to play video games unrestricted again, I’ll have lost some of my edge 😉

Second off, my Uncle Ronnie passed away this morning. It makes me horribly sad, but there is one way I know he is always going to live on: as a character in the game Tomodachi Life for the Nintendo 3DS.

The Ronnie of this physical world may have passed, but the Ronnie who is a resident of Crickie Island (my island’s name in the game) is alive and well. In this world, he is with his wife, my Aunt Carol, and they enjoy many adventures together.

That’s one of the beautiful things about the gaming experience. Even in sad, dark times, gaming can take you on an adventure. Any time I’m missing Uncle Ronnie, I can pop in for a quick visit to Crickie Island and see his look-alike. It’s no substitute for the real person, of course, but it makes me feel better nonetheless. So life is gonna go on for Uncle Ronnie, Crickie Island style. There, a piece of him will live on forever.
