I was truly sad when I heard the news. Alan Rickman has passed away (age 69) while battling cancer.
In short, thanks for playing as Severus Snape during the wonderful journey in Harry Potter in the Wizardry World.
We know you will not be able to read Harry Potter to your family in your 80, but we promise we will them how good you were!
Rest in peace, Alan Rickman, thank you for everything! You will be missed!
