Sorry for your loss Jeff.
I know it sounds trite, but what can you really say?
Its such a major event in your life.
I hope you can find peace.

My dad's funeral is on Sunday Feb 3, in Boca Raton Florida.

I brought ipods to record conversations with him
about all the hacks, insights and details of the vintage hardware
and systems he used, but the stage 4 lung cancer and chemo
stole his voice only a week after I arrived :-(
At 90, dad could not tolerate the chemo required
to fight the lung cancer.
James T Kirk might not believe in the "no win scenario"
but I could not cheat like he did with the Kobayashi Maru :-(

Carl Claunch summarized it best:
He was a great person,
someone I was fortunate to have known and worked with.
A master of the mainframe who just quietly did his job.
