Yes...way too young. I remember when he died, living in the UK at the time, what a - like a black cloud hanging over people, who helped each other get through a very real grief.
Isn't it odd that you can react like that? Well, not odd, exactly..

We knew it was coming, and he hung in there a long time, with everybody kept their fingers crossed for a just

He would sometimes loose his thread in an interview on a scene, and people just waited quietly and understandingly while the interviewer found another topic. And Pratchett wasn't embarrassed,
he knew he was among friends.
