My beloved Mike is gone.

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.

I am so sorry. Words fail.

If there is anything even slightly useful I can do -- a hotdish or some fresh bread, helping you or someone else closer to him than I was with a household chore if it just feels like too much, driving someone somewhere they need to be, whatever -- you let me know. mris at-sign marissalingen dot com. Willing heart, hands, auto, whatever.

Again, I am so very sorry.

Me too. I'd like to help if I can. If there are expenses, I have some I could spare...

What? No! I'm so sorry for your loss.

Oh, shit. I'm so sorry. Even though in some ways it was expected, still it must have been a shock--must be a shock. I'm glad you at least have extra-wonderful support, emotional and practical.

Oh, Elise.

I'll be thinking about you.


So sorry to hear this.

If there's anything I can do...

My condolences, and blessings to you and all his loved ones. I never met him, but I always enjoyed reading his books.

We are sorry for your loss.

Oh, I'm so sorry. Have strength.

Dear Elise,

I barely knew Mike, but he impressed me as a wise and witty human being, and I am so sorry for your loss.

Not that I expect you to go without more able assistance than mine, but if you need anything, I am at your disposal.

Love and affection--


I am so sorry for your loss. May you be comforted, and all his loved ones.

I am so sorry. You and everyone close to him have my thoughts and sympathies.

*sympathy* I never met him, but I love The Scholars of Night and much of his other writing.

Yours in sympathy and sorrow

My heart goes out to you and to all who love your dear Mr. Ford. I wish you strength when you need it and peace when you seek it.
