Wow! I am struck speechless, I was looking forward to seeing him this wed!

I'm am at a great loss, and the Mark Twain community has lost a true Twain scholar.

Thank you for letting us know. Please let me know if there is anything I can do to help,
Thank you,

Subject: Michael Kiskis

With great sorrow we announce that Michael J. Kiskis passed away today, Mother's Day, in Binghamton, New York after suffering heart failure. He died surrounded by his caring and devoted wife Ann, friends and family members.
He was beloved and he was one of those rare individuals who knew how much he was loved and he loved in return. Those of us who were among his friends recognized that he was and will always be our greatest gift. As Twain said we are thunder struck by his loss.

As plans are made for a memorial celebration of his life, information will be shared.

Ann Ryan, Laura Skandera Trombley and Mark Woodhouse
