rest now.

Just damn! I hate to hear this:

Hey Rob...

Off-topic, but I just wanted to let ya know that one of our commenters has passed away.

I got the email from Terry Reynold's brother this morning.
He passed away "in front of his computer, which was his window on the world in these days of his illness..."

He told you a thousand times that he really liked you and he was always saying that thru you, he found me and Lord, what a good friend he was to me.

So, thank you from me, too.

And, for the love of God, please take care of yourself.

I am sorry to hear this news. Terry was a witty, insightful person who was always welcome in my comments. I'm going to miss him.


Terry was a good buddy. When I got that same e-mail from his brother, it knocked the wind out of me. I don't know that I've got another commenter that was as supportive on a personal level as Terry was. He'd send kind and informative e-mails, funnies, links to interesting articles he'd read, and he was sure to comment whenever I wrote something worth commenting on. I don't think a week has gone by, in the last year and a half, in which I haven't smiled to see the name "Terry Reynolds" in my inbox.

He was a good man, and he will be sorely missed.

I didnt know Terry, but it seems like he would have been "my kind of guy"....

He really was wonderful.
Still can't believe I won't be seeing "Terry" come up when my cell rings anymore....

Terry Reynolds had the kindest way of letting people know he cared about them. Stevie, you take care....

Damn. Just DAMN!

Terry was one of the very first commenters on my blog, ever. Always encouraging, always with a unique insight. Always on the side of the angels.

And now, he joins them. Rest in Peace, my virtual brother.

Rob. Is there any way the blogosphere can join with you to send a wreath, or contribute to whichever foundation memorializes him best?

I've made an inquiry.
I'll let you know what I find out.

R.I.P. Terry.

Guys, I'm sorry for your (the world's) loss.
