This is off-topic for sure, but it regards something very near and dear to my heart. On Sunday, September 16th at 2:45pm, Robert Jordan, author of the Wheel of Time series, succumbed to Amyloidosis and died. His last words were of love to his wife Harriett, who stood by his side until the very end.
An extraordinary hit to the literary community, and a fine man. He will be missed.
