Absolutely devastating. I couldn't Finish reading that.
This man and his work have been there for me since the age of twelve. It shouldn't end like this, as publicly as this, and I can see how afraid but brave he is in writing this to us.
God Bless you George, you have my love.
I don't know if the public nature of this is good or bad, that's his call of course. I don't know if you read far enough to see that he wants to organize a big public event, a send-off I suppose, where he can sign as many books and hug as many fans as possible. I don't know if that's more for the fans or for him, but it's what he wants. I'm sure he will get a standing ovation that will last a very long time. As he should.
