It is a sad day for DearDiary and many of our readers. We've been advised that Pragmatist, one of our long time diarists, has passed away in her sleep overnight.
I've personally had interactions with Pragmatist through the support e-mail address and she was a lovely lady who will be missed by many.
For those who've written to us asking that her diary remain available as a memoriam to her, unless her family request otherwise then of course the diary will remain available. Pragmatist loved her diary and loved her readers, keeping it available seems like an appropriate thing to do.
Rest In Peace Pragmatist – I hope to meet you up there with the Lord when it's my turn!
