There's a little less magic left in the world today. Safe travels, Sir Terry. See you out there.
You've summed it right up - we keep losing the ones we can't afford to lose. Two people I cared about immensely, and who profoundly influenced my life, who were part of my life - despite never meeting either, despite the fact that they never knew I existed - both gone within a couple of weeks? It hurts.
Thank you for this tribute.
Courage, courage to us all.
