Step-Grandfather Passed Away This Morning

July 21, 2008 § 10 Comments

Stepfather’s father died today. 1917-2008 is a good long life. I am not nearly as sad about this as I was of Elbe’s passing, but still…could y’all just stop with the death thing already? More info to follow as I know. Not sure what this means for start of Pennsic. May mean nothing as it may just be immediate family (of which I may not be counted). Totally not sure. Not even sure *where* (possibly Cinci).

Rest In Peace: Master Osric Cumbra, OL, 1957-2008

From the Middlebridge:

My husband, Elbert Cheek V, also known as Master Osric Cumbra, Order of the Laurel, died Saturday, July 12, 2008 of a massive sudden heart attack.

I will announce funeral arrangements after I have made them on Monday morning.

Please keep our family in your thoughts and prayers. Osric loved many of you more than he could ever say.

And get your annual physical. Osric did, but this crept up on him quickly. Stay healthy, everyone, there are far too many people counting on all of us.

My heart is broken and will take a long time to mend. I have been crying on and off since this morning for a man I am proud to have called my friend. I miss you, Elbie. — Iasmin

Rest In Peace: (Ernest) Gary Gygax (1938-2008)

Gary Gygax, co-creator of Dungeons and Dragons, passed from this world today. Here’s to hoping he’s rolling the big dice on an alternate plane.

Natural 20s to you, man. Be well and safe in your new life.

Where Am I?
