I had hoped to see him turn up at the PWA awards dinner in Indianapolis last month as I recalled he lived in Indianapolis and he had a short story nominated. Now I know illness prevented that. Would have been nice if he had won but that wasn't to be.

    The YahooGroup ShortMystery had the bad news a bit earlier...in fact, Dick Stoghill was a member of that list, and several mutual menbers with RA (and a few with FM) have posted some thoughts there.
