  • Ooph, sad.

  • This would be the worst part of most days.

    Now news outlets reporting that they cannot confirm his death. Only that he was unconscious after cardiac arrest. Hopefully he is not dead and he pulls through.

  • He’s not dead yet. Having just had triple bypass, I can relate. I was quite close to death when the doctors found how bad it was. One foot in the grave and one on a banana peel. Here’s fingers crossed for Tom!

  • “I’m not dead yet…”
