Sad day | High Sierra Topix  

Sad day

Grab your bear can or camp chair, kick your feet up and chew the fat about anything Sierra Nevada related that doesn't quite fit in any of the other forums. Within reason, (and the HST rules and guidelines) this is also an anything goes forum. Tell stories, discuss wilderness issues, music, or whatever else the High Sierra stirs up in your mind.

I'm really sorry for your loss. I've been there and it isn't fun, but LMBSGV said it well, I can't add anything to that. Nature calls...

My sincere condolences for your loss Rock. There are few words that can ease the anguish of losing someone close to you, but time does miraculous things.
If you stand in the light, you get the feel of the night, and the music that plays in your ear......
In your mind you can hear, a voice so sweet and clear, and the music that plays in your head......
As it flows up from the ground, taking all that hear the sound, close your eyes, it’s about to begin.

I'm very sorry to hear of your loss especially someone who wasn't very old. Terrific photo of him. That looks like a geologist's pose.

Many in the eastern sierra are mourning his loss, including a lady who works with me at ESWC where I volunteer. She was crying 3 days later as she told me a story of his help driving her husband to Mammoth Hospital in the middle of the night. Said she had never known a nicer man. I am sorry I never met him, he was very well respected.

Cindy is an amazing person, she does so much for the valley. Thanks so much for the kind words.
I'm no suture for my future.
