Moment of Silence: Mike Briggs

[personal profile] callibr8 shared this news with me:

Mike Briggs (husband of author Patricia Briggs, best known for her urban fantasy series of 'Mercy Thompson' and 'Alpha and Omega' books) died suddenly, this morning. Patty's assistant Ann posted a message on Facebook: "It is with a very heavy heart that I write of the passing of one of the finest men I have ever known. Mike Briggs passed away very early this morning, very unexpectedly. We are all deeply in shock and grieving. Things on the webpage and Facebook will likely be a bit neglected while we sort things out and make all the necessary arrangements.   Mike was simply just an awesome and amazing man; we will miss him every day for the rest of our our lives.  The purple avenger will be doing his good works in heaven; I will strive to live up to the example and high standards that he set."

EDIT 1/27/17:  I have written an elegy for Mike Briggs.  My heart goes out to his family.  I have greatly enjoyed the the novels by Patricia Briggs, especially the Alpha and Omega series.
