Sir Terry Pratchett…A cherished memory <3

In case you have been living under a rock this week you may have missed that one of the most brilliant writers and minds of our time have passed away….Sir Terry Pratchett.

Terry Pratchett was probably most famous for writing the book series “Discworld” and influenced millions of people and other writers around the world and was awarded an OBE inn 1998.

Unfortunately though a few years ago he was diagnosed with a rare form of early-set Alzheimers. One of the reasons though that I admired him SO much was because instead of hiding away, he faced his diagnosis head on. I watched his documentary series on others who were also battling terminal illnesses and how they were dealing with it “Terry Pratchett: Living With Alzheimer’s”. It was moving and brought up the issues of assisted suicide. It was incredibly moving and I recommend everyone watch it at some point.

R.I.P Terry Pratchett!
