More than that is hard to say just now. I think it will be a bit before I am coherent.

There is a post on Making Light.

Please pass the word to the people who loved him, liked his work, and so on. There will certainly be some sort of memorial service, but it won't be for at least a couple of weeks. Late October is the best I can give right now. More when I have it.

Hug your dear ones.

What a hole in the heart. Sorry seems so inadequate.

Love and comfort to you.

Oh no, I can't believe it. I've loved his writing since I was in high school, when I always thought I was smart enough to see the ending and he always surprised me. That was, and has been, such a gift! I'm so sorry, for you of course but also for the rest of us. What a loss.

I found out about it this morning as I was showing my class "Making Light" as an example of a blog--made it hard to keep teaching. I knew him mainly through WisCon, and looked forward to seeing him there. The loss of him is heavy for us all, even those who can't consider ourselves close friends. My thoughts go out to you--

There is a hole in the universe. I am more sorry than I can say. My heart goes out to you.

Condolences and hugs from me, too.


You have my sympathies. He will be missed. Deeply, with pain of loss and joy of memories.



and *hugs* again and then as many as you need.

(((hugs))) to you. I just read on Neil's blog and my first thought was "Poor Elise! I hope she's doing alright!" My thoughts are with you now.

Always remember the sillies and the smiles.

I am so, so sorry for your loss.

I only met each of you through your work. My world is a little now that I will never be able to meet him in any other way.

I'm so very sorry.

May his memory bring you blessings.

Sympathy and condolences.

Add me and Irene to the list of people volunteering to help if you need anything.

I am so very sorry for your loss.

I enjoyed Mr. Ford's work, and it is a great loss to all of us that he is gone.

Elise I sent a private post already. I cannot know what you are feeling, but I do know what I felt when the love of my life passed on. Take care of yourself, let yourself heal, and lean upon your friends. Robin and I send our love. And hugs.

I'm so sorry to hear this. He made our community so much better.

My sympathies to you and yours for your loss.

When you have want of it, I have a joke for you. It is crass and likely tasteless as hell. But it is what I have by way of easing grief.

I knew Mike when he was a guest on The Literary Forum, back maybe when The Scholars of Night came out. He was a lovely man. I was very sorry to hear that he has died.

I knew of Mike from his comments on Making Light, which were uniformly wonderful and witty. My condolences on your loss.

Elise, I am so very sorry.
