David Levine reports:
SF writer Mark Bourne passed away yesterday, quite suddenly and unexpectedly, of a “cardiac event.” Please see http://scarlettina.livejournal.com/ for information on the memorial services (there will be a funeral this week and a celebration-of-life event in the next month or two).
Mark’s wife Elizabeth is asking that anyone who would like to honor him with a donation make their donations to Heifer International.
If you have anecdotes about Mark, amusing things, things that really defined him and his humor and kindness for you, please leave them as a comment at http://scarlettina.livejournal.com/1007779.html.
