George Romero passes away

I figured this was only a matter of time but George Romero has passed away at 77 from lung cancer. He's looked increasingly frail. Hoped he could've gotten one more zombie movie. RIP

RIP George. Thanks for making the best zombie movies of all time. Without him zombies, as we know them today, would not exist. I am glad I was able to meet him in 2010, sad that I will never be able to see him again. Celebrity deaths rarely affect me on a personal level but this one hit me hard. Similar feelings to when Bob Wilkins and Forrest J. Ackerman died. I am sad.
