Dave Arneson, co-creator of D&D, died of cancer on Thursday. Gary Gygax, the other co-creator, died last March.
I guess it's up to us, the new generation of role-players, to keep their spirits alive. The creativity and socializing that you can get from role-playing is still (in my opinion) one of the most valuable things that a young (or young-at-heart) person can do to help develop themselves.
In the mean time, I bet there's one heck of a session going on up in heaven.
