In 2003 my dad passed away. Back then I was at the helm of a 40 people game developing company and I struggled with how to share this news with the rest of the team. Did I even need to do so or should I just pretend like nothing happened? Last Sunday my mom passed away and here I am again wondering whether this is something I should share with everyone or not.
For me the conclusion is now as it was back then. I don’t see any reason to hide from this and so I decided to freely share this information. I’m currently in France for the funeral and I’m likely to fall behind support a bit this week. This is not an excuse, just a heads up. I’ll be back at full strength next week.
