Author of the Discworld series, wise and funny and compassionate-- one of my very favorite authors. He died today of complications from Alzheimer's. I can picture him and Leonard Nimoy walking together somewhere and comparing notes on life.
Until they remember, people don't die permanently, but simply change their state, location in space. As long as you remember your favorite writer (actor or another idol, relative), he will live. >-) :o3
His spirit will live on.
RIP Terry Pratchett.
Arg. It's not a good month. But thanks for the smiles Terry.
