ERIC MURRAY DESANTIS
What a sad way to start the new year. It pains me greatly to report the untimely passing of my former editorial co-worker at Wildstorm, and my dear friend Eric DeSantis, who was taken from us too soon and now rests in the hands of the sweet baby Jesus. Eric was a man of few words, a tender soul, a warm and generous spirit, quick to smile, with a memorable, high-pitched laugh. He loved comics, good food and drink, and was a tireless champion of migrant farmworker rights. Eric died the way he lived, probably the way he would want to have gone.
His blog, Litany of Schizzed, will remain online in the weeks and months to come, and I urge you to post messages of condolences to be read by Eric's immediate family and friends. Also, Eric's longtime companion has urged that in lieu of flowers, donations be sent to his beloved UFW.
Godspeed to heaven, friend DeSantis. Truly, you will be missed.
