Yes, an Alt Obits and former Deathrace pick of mine. She has blood cancer and said samething like "See you in the next life" in November. Let's see how long she lasts now.

Well, aside from joking, she is a very likely goner this year. Still remarkable she is recovering when it seemed the end.

One of the most prominent historians and novelists in Italy, Valerio Massimo Manfredi, has been found unconscious at home with his wife, likely due to carbon monoxide intoxication. Condition unknown, but seems serious and rumours earlier floated about his death. Would be quite shocking.

Not in danger of life, apparently.

Despite his name showing up frequently in other pools the last year or two,looks like no one tried to cash in on him in the DDP.

From earlier news sounded like he had COVID. Acute respiratory problem and nausea.

Considering he had been in and out of hospital for the last three years and at least on life support twice, furthermore being an ashtma sufferer, I'd say not necessarily COVID.

There’s nothing ie QO link suggesting he would have been a successful DDP pick.  He was certainly the flavour of the month a year ago.

So close to getting away as well, ten seconds later and he'd have likely managed to surrender!

Doesn't look very funny judging from his Wikipedia infobox picture.

More so the type of clown who would call you up anonymously and say "I want to play a little game".
