Thank you for being provocative, and inspiring, and giving me images from Cat's Cradle and Hocus Pocus that still stick with me 15-plus years after I read it (in high school, as many of us do).
Thank you for breaking my heart with emotionally flat writing, which is part of the genius of Slaughterhouse-5.
Hell, even thank you for being willing to make fun of yourself in Back to School.
I'm sad that you're no longer with us, but I'm glad we had you for 84 years.
Always trying to be kind,
