Rory didn't make it.  
I'm so gutted right now. Rory was one of those comic stars in the sky that we needed more than ever right now. Every fan and professional I know in comics has a good word about him, nearly all have a story about him, I have a couple of my own and I'll admit, I was chuckling about them a couple of minutes ago with a tear on my cheek.

I'll miss seeing Rory at San Diego. If they keep the stool there as a memorial, it'll be weird, yet touching. Rory was for me, as he was for many the first retailer to actively demand copies of my work. When I took the ashcan copies of Hope Falls to SDCC last year, he actually hunted me down to get one.

Rory Root has died, and the world is that little bit greyer now he's gone, but at least he's at peace now.

Sorry you have lost a friend Tony. I hope they keep the stool for him, it might be weird but it would be a nice thought.
