Thanks, Ryan. He was pretty great.I'm sorry for your loss. Things like that are never easy. My grandma has pancreatic cancer currently and is battling but of course the outlook isn't great. She had breast cancer over a decade ago and beat that so there is always hope. It's sounds like he accomplished a lot in his life despite being gone too early.
And I'll keep your grandma in my thoughts - she sounds like a fighter and hopefully she can keep that up until a cure can be found. Cancer is really the worst.
Thanks, Sarah. His lifelong goal was to be a writer for the NY Times, and when he did it ... it was just amazing. Some of his best work was at the NYT - Portraits of Grief, etc. He was a very, very gifted writer and the journalism profession is definitely weaker with his passing.I saw an obituary for him in the NY Times last week ... it sounds like he was a great journalist and a great person.
I'm so sorry for your loss.
