   It's been a hard year. This makes it just a little harder. But his writing lives on, and I am grateful for that.

   AT LAST, SIR TERRY, WE MUST WALK TOGETHER.
Terry took Death's arm and followed him through the doors
and on to the black desert under the endless night.

The End

Suitable ending of a spectacular life.

   Something I read somewhere else:-

COME ALONG, SIR. IT'S TIME TO GO HOME.

The author shrugged his shoulders and followed the skeletal figure. "I made you, you know." He said conversationally.

Death nodded. YOU DID. He said, rubbing his chin in a rueful gesture. I SUPPOSE IT'S FITTING, IN A WAY. STILL, I WOULD HAVE LIKED TO SEE THE ENDING.

"Well, I suppose I can tell you," The author leaned upward and whispered something into Death's... side of the head. One thing that was odd about being a skull was that you had no ears to whisper into.

Death nodded. THAT'S A GOOD ENDING.

The author shrugged his shoulders, and adjusted his hat as he started to fade. "It was a good story."

   As fitting as Tolkien's "Leaf by Niggle". Thank you.

<sigh> We all knew it had to come soon. I'll raise a glass in his memory tonight.

   ...I'll just be over here quietly weeping, then.

Godspeed, Sir Terry.

When I saw the news on my smartphone at work today, I had to pause, sit down and take a shuddering breathe as the tears came. He may not have been the best writer to whom I was introduced, or the most important writer whose works I've read, but he was _by far_ the most enjoyable writer I've ever encountered. For more than 21 years, his works helped shape my understanding of the human condition -- my condition -- and although the world knew that he was losing the war against Alzheimer's disease, it still came as a big shock to hear that he had passed.

Goodbye, Sir Terry. Thank you for everything.

   A man is not yet dead while his name is still spoken.

-Sir Terry Pratchett

Which means that he, Leonard Nimoy, and a bunch of others that have appeared in the RIP posts here won't die for a GOOD long while, yet.

   I think xkcd put it better than I ever could.
