I don't know, I'm just so saddened by all this.

That photo, that's a great memory I'll bet.

Today is a sad day, Robert has past away. There will be a memorial service held in Maryland. His daughter Katie will post the where and when.

MY HEART JUST SANK. For someone I never meet in person I held a huge respect and admiration of him. Always had time to talk to a dumb-ass like me.

damn

I went through this with both of my parents. Always sad but oddly a relief as well. Knowing they wouldn't get better, the relief came from knowing there was no more suffering.
Godspeed

Fare the well. May his guidance help us all when it's our turn.

The pain is gone.
