A Farewell

Sir Terry.1,

Sir Terry Pratchett was knighted by the Queen for services to literature in the 2009 New Year Honours.  A prolific writer and possessor of a quirky and satirical sense of humor, his books are a delight, leading the reader through outbursts of laughter and unusual observations about our world.  Always with a light and gentle touch, his satire and tolerance of human foibles is a lesson to us all.

When asked, in December 2006, about his habit of permanently wearing a black hat, he replied: “I do take it off sometimes because how else is a man to shower?”

We will miss you, Sir Terry.  We thank you for leaving behind the legacy of your humor and delightful imagination.
