One of the powers of our connected world is how strangers can feel like friends. When people like you share fragments of their life openly, it is a one-way relationship. We have never met, but you still feel like a friend to me. And my sorrow and sympathies certainly feels real. I am very sorry for your loss, my friend.

So sorry to hear this.

Andrew said...

Also wanted to leave my condolences here. My father died unexpectedly last month and I know that words at this time, especially from a complete stranger, are inadequate. But I felt compelled to say something anyways. You're books have been a balm to me through my own grief, and a sort of way to help me still fill connected to my father. He lived and breathed science fiction so anytime I find a good book we would discuss it and he would then tell me about one of his favorites for the thousandth time. It never got old.Take care of yourself, Neal.
