Lance Mannion Has Died, And His Family Needs Help

Donation protected
Lance Mannion died in his sleep last Friday night.

In the real world, he was David Reilly , but to the online world, he was Lance -- a generous literary figure  with the soul of a poet who shared his kind and thoughtful insights on everything from politics to movies.

He leaves behind his beloved wife Adrianne and his much-loved sons Matthew and Jack.

Because he was a teacher, and a writer, finances were always a struggle -- especially in the aftermath of his wife's brain surgery.  (I know just a few months ago he was trying to deal with a plumbing problem he couldn't afford to fix.)

He made so many of us happy with his writing, and while his family recovers from the shock of his sudden death, we want to help lessen their considerable burden. 

So please, give what you can.
