Terry Pratchett

13 Mar

It was with great sadness that I read yesterday that one of the brightest lights in literature had forever ceased to shine yesterday. At age 66 Terry Pratchett has lost his long struggle with Alzheimer’s disease.

I will forever remember and enjoy reading (again) his novels, for they brought me a lot of happiness over the past two decades. Rest in Peace, Terry! I hope Death was happy with the way you portrayed him and treated you like and old friend!


“It is often said that before you die your life passes before your eyes. It is in fact true. It’s called living.” 


“The presence of those seeking the truth is infinitely to be preferred to the presence of those who think they’ve found it.”

    Indeed, my friend, a great loss – such a brilliant man and writer. RIP Terry.
