    Oh dear. I don't think anybody even knew he had cancer around here. I hope he spent his final days with his family by his side, and is now with our Savior.

    Now, we've lost one great Narnian again…. He's really a great actor for the role of Coriakin. Let's pray for his soul and I hope he's now in Aslan's Country….. 🙁

    Saddened that he suffered with cancer before he passed away but glad that he's no longer battling cancer. He's well, healed and happy. Prayers offered for his family.

    Nope, he kept it a secret from nearly everyone.

    I did like that part about how he hosted his own birthday in the hospital. He must have been a really fun personality!

    He must have valued his privacy. I like people who keep their privacy, especially celebrities who don't tell media what they had for lunch.

    He's gone Further Up and Further In,
    He has sailed Into The West.

    Would it be alright for you to read The Hobbit on your computer/laptop/device? Because I found this:
    You can print/download it.
