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.

Dr. S. is one of those bloggers whom, every time I read him -- whether at his site or in his comments here or on my Bible blog -- I always wish I read him more often. One of the good guys.

Very best wishes to him in this terrible circumstance.

Leah, thanks for finding this. Not being around much of late I had no idea there was any problem, and then to hear this....there are no words.

well, what few I could come up with I left at his place. Most of us are of an age where we have had our own losses, to which we inevitably compare that of someone else, but there are few things which cause the utter chaos both emotional and practical as the death of a spouse.

I hope with all my heart that he has someone close and trustworthy who can care for him through this time. When the black wings sweep overhead this close, the earth shatters beneath your feet.
