The Finch Formerly Known As Gold

The wheat/rye guy

A regular commenter around here for quite some time, and a blogger in his own right — and, sad to say, he may be leaving us:

During Drinking Right last night we got a call from Triticale's wife.

She told us he is not doing very well. His Doctors only give him a few more days.

We offer our respect, best wishes and prayers.

No more can I add, except to do the same.

From what I hear it could be any time now...

Sad thing.

Oh man. My thoughts and prayers are with him and his family.

Here is a post I just did in his honor:

My Friend Triticale Has Died

Tom and I were friends since the mid 70s.

I'll miss him.

I'll miss the guy greatly. There was no discussion he couldn't enhance.

Yeah, I just found out, because I hadn't checked my email in a couple of days.

Munuvian Overlord Pixy Misa has posted the story to triticale.mu.nu. (A sterling fellow, Pixy; I suspect he will preserve the site as a memorial for as long as possible.)
