During my recent adventures as the companion of a certain infamous Time Lord, I was both shocked and saddened to discover this obituary for author Paige Cuccaro, whose novella FROM HERE TO ETERNITY, I am currently reading. I thought I'd share it with you so that you can be sure to enjoy her writing before she heads off on her own adventures with The Doctor.
We regret to report the passing of Paige Cuccaro who, after 280 years of life, finally released her hold on the mortal coil. Despite her advanced age Paige’s demise came as a surprise to her friends and family when the teleportation platform she was using, malfunctioned and teleported her onto the landing pad of an intergalactic space bus—as it was docking.
The bus passengers reported that Mrs. Cuccaro looked remarkably good for her age and somewhat surprised to see that the bus was, in fact, running on time for once. But it was Mrs. Cuccaro faithful readers who held a special place in her heart and reportedly occupied her final thought. Some have said her last words before stepping onto the teleportation platform were to a reader waiting next in line. “Why yes,” she said. “It was my sci-fi novella, FROM HERE TO ETERNITY, that inspired the creation of the human to cybernetic brain transfer they use today.”
Paige leaves this world after fulfilling two life goals. 1. Witnessing the creation of the United Federation of Planets. 2. Traveling the galaxy with Dr. Who wherein she aided in saving earth…twice. Her time spent in service as Earth’s Ambassador to the Federation of Planets, pales in comparison to her vast contribution to the literary world.
Due to the circumstances of Ms. Cuccaro’s death, the family was able to choose a beautiful casket from the Wile E Coyote collection, a golden one inch by twelve inch case. A closed casket service will be held next Sunday. In lue of flowers, the Cuccaro family asks that you join the Adopt a Star program and help keep our galaxy clean.
