Leroy Sievers died Friday of the cancer about which he’s blogged for the last few years.
The last post on his blog came from his wife, Laurie Singer, last Thursday:
On any normal day, this would just be a really bad thunderstorm rumbling its way across the summer sky.
But it’s not a normal day and the rumbling is more like the growl of a predator stalking its prey.
Leroy’s cancer is making its move.
I guess we all knew this day would come. The day when his doctor would say the medicine needs to be stronger.
The day when I would need to be stronger still.
The thunderstorm has passed, but I can still hear the growl.
