I was so sad when I read this....God bless him and his family, and may he rest in peace.Michael Crichton, the author of such popular novels as Jurassic Park, Timeline, The Andromeda Strain and Disclosure, died on Tuesday at the age of 66. Crichton's family revealed that he had been suffering from "a private battle with cancer" for quite some time, which came as a shock to his many fans around the globe. In addition to his plethora of novels, Crichton also gained fame for creating NBC's medical drama ER, which is currently in its 15th and final season. His final novel, Next, was published in 2006.
TVGuide.com posted a statement from Crichton's family regarding his death, which reads: "While the world knew him as a great storyteller that challenged our preconceived notions about the world around us. . . family and friends knew Michael Crichton as a devoted husband, loving father and generous friend who inspired each of us to strive to see the wonders of our world through new eyes. He did this with a wry sense of humor that those who were privileged to know him personally will never forget."

That is so sad.
My prayers go out to his friends and family for their loss. I guess the one good thing to come out of it is that he is no longer suffering and is with his Savior now.
