This is sad news. I was a student of Mr. McCourt in high school and wrote about it on my blog. He was a big influence for me and countless other students. A wonderful story teller and a great teacher. He will be missed.

Angela's Ashes made a huge impression on me. Frank McCourt told his story with amazing clarity. My family is of Irish heritage and I passed the book around until it became quite dog-eared. He will be missed.

This guy was amazing. One of the whole reasons why I started writing. He will be missed :*(
