Sir Terry's sad news

Postby meerkat » Fri Apr 02, 2010 7:37 pm

I have just received my discworld monthly and on the PJSM home page Terry said his mother had just died.

Sir Terry, Please accept my sympathies and, Terry, your Mum will always be with you!

Always a sad day when you lose a a dear parent, but he surely knew how proud she must have been of him in her lifetime.

Thanks meerkat. :( I was very sad to read of Terry's loss in the Discworld Monthly as well.

I am very sorry to read about the death of Terry's Mother.
My Mother died recently also, it wasn't & still isn't a good time here. But life goes on as they say.
Best wishes,
Tiff

Big hugs and kisses to Terry and his family.

The rest of us are a bit crap.
