RIP Araucaria

From a crossword fan to the best setter ever.
I remember my parents looking forward to the crossword, even more so if it was set by Araucaria. And when I grew up enough to 'get' the whole cryptic crossword thing, I too appreciated his talent. A very sad loss.

Thanks for mentioning that, eddiemairswife. We don't always get weekday Guardians, so now we've bought today's specially.

I have just found this thread. I was choked up reading of his death on Tuesday - I loved his crosswords and dh and I often did them together. I'll look up the tribute crossword - thank you. RIP.
