Thank you very much, everybody.

I came home from work today and saw the obituary and broke-down for the first time. Everybody's tagging him in Facebook tributes and photos, and it's a little weird getting all those alerts.

He was an awesome guy and one of the ones I held-up as reassurance that there were still some really great ones left. Somebody once wrote a letter about him and described him as being like a young gentleman out of another era, with so much class and respect.

I'm glad his wife had twins last year, and that both their families are nearby. This guy ALWAYS had a smile on his face. He was amazing. He taught us all about being strong seizing the day.
