34. He may be gone physically

but he hasn't left us. Our memories is what he left behind. We're all better for his contributions.

I didn't know him and occasionally ran across his posts.......I thought his posts were very insightful, informative and objective.

RIP

I work in the aviation field, maintaining flight simulators. I may not be a pilot, but flight fascinates me- especially raptors.

31. I tend to avoid posting in any personal posts on DU.

 

Due to my own personal hang ups on mortality, I especially avoid posting tribute and loss threads.

However, seeing work created as one faces their own mortality has also stirred me. Thank you for posting. His simple works moved me.

36. Thank you.

And he did face his own mortality, over many years, but esp. these last 16 months.

He always said to live in the moment, since he never knew when his last moment would come.

I am glad his works moved you, my dear morningfog...

41. Yes, my dear calimary, most of them are watercolors.

There's one (I think, the round one) is a silk-screen.

His wife had posted them on Facebook, and I wanted all of you to see them too.

I agree: they make a great memory of him.

beautiful voice singing beautiful songs on youtube.

Such a talent, and such a beautiful spirit.

His music was very comforting to me.

I am so very sorry for your loss, Peggy.

I am keeping you, his wife Laurie, his family and many friends, in my thoughts, and I wish you all peace in this difficult time.
