So Long, Topher

I just found out that a friend of mine from back in Illinois, Topher, died suddenly last night. This is quite a shock to all of us as you can imagine, and it’s still kind of hard to believe. You’ve seen him comment here as “Topher” on several posts. He was a great guy and he’s going to be missed by all of us who knew him. Our thoughts go out to his wife Lesley and all their friends and family.

    If anyone wants to send Lesley a sympathy card, e-mail me at, and I’ll send you her address.

    This is horrible news, speaking as both Topher’s gaming buddy and as Lesley’s dissertation advisor. Everything was going right for the two of them . . .

  7. He will be sorely missed. I know everyone in our gaming group has taken this pretty hard. I am working on my own blog to put together my own thoughts on this horrible event.
