Welcome to Sendinghome.online
This site is an unofficial fan site, and its not affiliated with Dumanifestin Limited or Narrativia Limited. It was created out of respect and shared love of Sir Terry Pratchett, we do not charge for the service, and only share links to bonafide and approved Terry Pratchett websites
In Sir Terry Pratchett‘s novel ‘Going Postal‘ The clacks were created and a lovely memorial to loved ones was invented. Namely Sending Home. By using the Clacks code GNU as broken down below; a departed loved ones name was sent back and forth through the overhead for all eternity. STP wrote
Noli Timere Messorum – Don’t Fear The Reaper
DON’T THINK OF IT AS DYING, said Death. JUST THINK OF IT AS LEAVING EARLY TO AVOID THE RUSH.
Look after the dead, said the priests, and the dead would look after you. After all, they were in the majority.
Death marked the first day of the rest of his life
He said that there was death and taxes, and taxes was worse, because at least death didn’t happen to you every year.
IF PEOPLE KNEW WHEN THEY WERE GOING TO DIE, I THINK THEY PROBABLY WOULDN’T LIVE AT ALL
The span of someone’s life, they say, is only the core of their actual existence.
Life is a habit that’s hard to break…
No one is actually dead until the ripples they cause in the world die away…
A man is not dead while his name is still spoken
This inspired us to come up with the GNU directory. Allowing any STP fans to send their loved one home through the overhead. Creating a singular place for their names to be spoken for all time.
