1. This is a death I never saw coming. Will was in the prime of his life!

To be suddenly taken from all of us who treasured his writing and his wisdom, this is a heartbreaking blow.

May he rest in peace.

May his words continue to inspire and enlighten all of us.

7. Damn, I was still hoping it wasn't true. I was honored that he followed me on Twitter.

I think I'm going to re-read some of my favorite Truthout columns in his honor.

He loved her so, and he shared his heart so openly in that regard. We all saw that love dearly, clearly.

So heartbreaking for her. Unfair, for him to go so soon.

I always thought of myself as a good writer and have had good jobs as one. Then I met the work of Will Pitt. I'm still in awe of his talent.
