      Very sad.

      He wanted to go out with a bang, ended up falling down the stairs...

      "when Hemingway killed himself he put a period at the end of his life; old age is more like a semicolon."

      And falling down the stairs is an exclamation mark (shaped like a banana skin)

      Strangely appropriate. So it goes.

      RIP, Mr. Vonnegut, I will miss you. I hope you are up in heaven surrounded by music.

      "And if I should ever die, God forbid, I hope you will say, ''Kurt is up in Heaven now.'' That’s my favorite joke."

      This photo was taken by Vonnegut's wife, Jill Krementz. Please credit her. She is a phenomenal talent in her own right and photographed our dear late Mr. V many many times, I think, taking the finest photos of him to be found. Yes, absolutely captures his adoration of her, as well, I think.
