Derek K. Miller:
Here it is. I’m dead, and this is my last post to my blog. In
advance, I asked that once my body finally shut down from the
punishments of my cancer, then my family and friends publish this
prepared message I wrote — the first part of the process of
turning this from an active website to an archive.
If you knew me at all in real life, you probably heard the news
already from another source, but however you found out, consider
this a confirmation: I was born on June 30, 1969 in Vancouver,
Canada, and I died in Burnaby on May 3, 2011, age 41, of
complications from stage 4 metastatic colorectal cancer. We all
knew this was coming.
He went down swinging, and with astounding class, dignity, bravery, and openness.
