Thank you for posting this- I do have the paper, but it was nice to see it posted. Will miss his pages. I do wonder if the pages he has up will remain.

Dear Love Ones,

I am so sorry to hear of his loss. I knew of him through research and study but never knew him personally. Though everyday, I felt like I knew him personally as if I was talking to him everyday. I believe I did speak to him once through the message board on this network some years back. His work was instrumental and inspiring. He helped me find my family on my dad's side. I was hoping to meet him since I moved down a few months ago. My prayers are with you all of you and those who work with him. May God Bless Him Always!!
