Rest in Peace Rannie Yoo

As the Editor in Chief of Gaming Nexus I deal with a lot of PR people on a day to day basis and most of them are young professionals who are about the same age or younger than I am so it was a bit of a shock when I found out that Rannie Yoo passed away over the weekend from a rare form of cancer.

I dealt with Rannie on and off over the last few years and she was always fun to deal with.  She was amazingly helpful and almost always returned e-mails and phone calls which is a plus when you're working for a smaller independent website.  I do remember a long call with her where we booked four E3 appointments and she was very patient as we tried to get people to all over her clients.
I can't recall ever meeting her in person but from other reports online she was a fun person to be around.  That said the world is a sadder place without her in it.
