Robert Jordan is Gone

I know most people's first reaction will be, "Holy shit did he finish the last book?". It's natural. But after reading the announcement of his death and the comments there I realized that he is more than a writer. He has family that will mourn him for more than his genius. Oh Gosh. Now this really makes me cry.

Digg down the a**holes who can't see beyond the book. We will wait for the last book but for now one of the commenters said it right when he asked people to just let his family grieve for now. Waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Since I am pretty sure this post doesn't do justice to the this sad event I'll just plagiarize Brussells' comment:

Though we miss him as fans, we cannot miss him as only his family can. Though our loss is real, it pales in comparison to yours. You have my deepest condolences. And though he will be sorely missed by thousands upon thousands of fans, he will be remembered at least as often, as we all glance up at our bookshelves... May God’s grace comfort you in this difficult time.

And Jaeden's comment as well.

The Wheel turns, and Ages come and pass, leaving memories that become legend.

Blessed be James Rigley, and Reagan O’Neal, and Robert Jordan, author and storyteller, a man whose memory shall live in legend until the breaking of the world.
