Just wanted to apologize for my recent not appering in the game. A bad accident at work has kept me away from the game and at a bad time considering the release of the newest expansion. A close friend of mine and even closer co worker, John LaRouch has passed away due to an industrial accident. A union broke lose at work causing a oil fire. John rushed in to turn off the valve but was quickly caught up in the fire. This act was way beyond what a normal worker would have done. The oil hit a 700 degree die and ignited both the oil and John. I used and entire fire extinguisher on him and even though most of the fire was put out he still was burning. I used my body to smother him as I rolled him around to put him out. He died the next day at Bradly Memorial Hospitol. I have been in legal troble since the loss of my friend and the need to blame someone for a death. The security tapes shows that i did all that could be done to help my friend. this comes after some time in jail as they tried to figure out if I had done wrong. there were many questions as to why I let him expire. The company and its Lawyer have said that i went beyond the call of duty according to the tapes and will have nothing to worry about except for the loss of a good worker and close friend. Even after the Co2 Extinguisher stopped working i tried to smother the flames by rolling him and throwing my body on him. All the other workers ran as John rushed in to try and stop the fire. John if you can hear me now that was the most brave thing I have ever seen and im sorry for what has happened. I will tend my burns and think about what he did as a very brave person who could just have run away from a fire. Instead he jumped in and tried to stop it. For those in game that know me it may take me some time to sort this all out and feel right about enjoying my life in game. This has bee very difficult and I may need some help in a proffesional way to let it pass.
