    This came up on my FB feed, sad news indeed for Mors and his family.

    Wishing him the best under such difficult times.

    I am truly sorry to hear of this. His teaching is a benchmark :) He made it not only relevant and interesting but fun too.

    I hope he and his family know just how well thought of he is, and that they have a lot of love and support around them.

    That doesn't sound good.

    Fingers crossed that there is some hope but it may be a slim chance.

    What is to say other than very sad news, it is not the end yet though, and a life worth living was a life full of giving, he has given to us all.

    His work will live on through his writing and teaching. A life well lived that has improved the lives of countless others. He will not be forgotten.

    Very sad news that, a very admirable man who has definitely made his mark through his works.Agreed a life lived well I reckon.
    I’am pretty sure that this dreadful illness cannot be cured, hope the old boy doesn’t suffer.

    That's sad to hear, I wish him and his family all the best.

    Perhaps Tony could organise something to be sent from BCUK?

    No matter how long the road, there is always hope at the end of it.
    Email sent wishing him well.

    I've never been lucky enough to meet Mors, but I have read his book countless times and spent many a lunch break watching his youtube videos over and over again. I have learnt so much from this very talented and knowledgable man. I feel so sad and unsettled by this news. My thoughts are definitely with him and his family.
