He had such a fine name that I was going to put him on my DDP next year, so I'll be interested to see if he gets a UK obit. I think he might struggle to get one, but I didn't think he'd actually die, so I wasn't that worried. :o

I've crossed his name out on the opening post of this thread. My money is on Patriarch Maxim of Bulgaria dying next, apparently he's very prone to colds and chest infections and the nights are getting colder...

Well, he did get an UK obit in the end.

Out of respect? Has DDT died? Perhaps it was metal poisoning, you got to be wary of lead, arsenic an cadmium in these tractor paints if your going to tuck into John Deere l'orange. My sincerest condolences go out to his sheep, there will be a sore hole in their lives which could take a while to heal.

Who will inherit the inevitably huge narcotic collection he has left behind? I think Star Crossed would give them a good home.

Maryport is a disappointment for which there is no cure, but the annual Deathrace thread hereabouts provides welcome distraction.

Archbishop Christodoulos's liver cancer has spread to his abdominal cavity. His liver transplant has been cancelled.

Dead in months at the outside, almost certainly. For all the hopeful blather he's in a really bad place. He'd get a UK obit too, given the political involvement over the years.

America has nothing more to offer Archbishop Christodoulos, he has returned home to Greece more riddled with cancer than he was when he left.

Slowly but surely, he ascends his own Golgotha.*

When he gets there he knows, if the stores are all closed...

...and he's buying a stairway to heaven.

I see your 'flowery language' and raise you 'maudlin teen angst'.

Archbishop Desmond Tutu probably deserves inclusion as well. He was first diagnosed with prostate cancer in 1996 and last month he announced it has returned.

Statistically speaking you are more likely to die of cancer the second time around... ;)
I don't have a TV but I happened to be in front of a set last December 31st and saw a New Year interview with the Archbish in which he talked about his cancer having returned, albeit in a non-aggressive manner - hence my inclusion of him in one of my lists for this year.

If that is a recent picture of him in the article quoted above, he has certainly lost some weight since the beginning of the year.


An article in this weeks Spectator magazine describes Archibishop Tutu as "gravely ill", without elaborating further. I think he's going to kick Peter O'Toole out of 20th place on my DDP team.

Nice little contradictory article on Pavle's health here. Sez the top:

Quote

"Patriarch's heart getting weaker" reports about the latest news from the VMA where His Holiness Patriarch Pavle is being treated for the past several weeks.

But then sez the bottom:

Quote

Another report reminds it's been 17 years since Patriarch Pavle took over as the head of the Serbian Orthodox Church (SPC), and says, "Patriarch's health 'discretely improved'", quoting doctors.

Still has a high spot on my 2008 DDP, but it may be easier to tell in a few weeks time.
