I learned earlier today by way of Bill Crider's blog that Ed Gorman died yesterday.
I never had the privilege of meeting the man. Most of our contact was by way of the occasional email which started shortly before Sandi underwent her stem cell transplant. While she was in Florida going through it and just after she came back he called me to share his own experiences and to buck up her morale as well as my own. Those calls and emails meant more to us than he will ever know.
Our thoughts and prayers are with his wife, Carol, his family, and friends who knew him far better than we did. He is truly missed.
