Tragedy Strikes Our Good Friend, Dr. Sardonicus
Dr. Sardonicus has been our friend and commentator since the the first days of Corrente, when it still had a blogspot as part of it's URL.
On his own blog he has announced the following:
My wife Peggy, known as Mrs. S. in these parts, passed away in her sleep late this afternoon. She was only 48 years old.
Peggy had little use for the internets, except for Netflix, but she always appreciated the kind words of encouragement and support you gave her here. As I have said, I don't have the most readers in the blogosphere, but I have the best.
Activities at Pole Hill are suspended for the time being. I will return to blogging as I am able.
The post is dated last Wednesday.
Mrs. S. illness had a history, much of which is chronicled at Dr. Sardonicus' blog, Pole Hill Sanitarium". He managed to weave in this personal struggle with his regularly posting. Go read. He's a wonderful blogger.
What to say in the face of the death of someone who was only 48 years old. There are no words. But leave a message of support for him on his blog anyway.
I know I do speak for everyone at Corrente when I say, Dr. Sardonicus, you are in our thoughts and our hearts.
