Today great sorrow surrounds our campfire.  We have lost the physical presence of one who has given us so much.  Fortunately for us, we still have our personal memories, our archived postings full of humor, knowledge, and wisdom.  Some have pieces of his wonderful art. 
He served his tribe, his family, our TIB, and our country.  We salute you brother.
You will be missed.  Rest in Peace.
