He will be sadly missed
Damn. I've just seen the breaking news on the BBC site that Terry Pratchett has just died.

His writing has given me many hours of enjoyment over the years and I will regret the loss of the books he could have written if he hadn't been afflicted with the "embuggerance" of early onset Alzheimers. Sixty six is far too young. He should have had longer to enjoy the world . :(

Indeed. I only met and spoke to him once, but I will miss him.

Having a personal & close association to the scourge that is Alzheimers my heart goes out to his family.

Oh no... Such sad news. He was unique and wonderful and kind, and he'll be sorely missed.
