It has been a rough few months for me, personal matters that I do not like to advertise, then I see the news about Gary's passing and I feel like I've been punched in the gut and my head hurts from all the thoughts that I am feeling.
Although not on as friendly a basis as some of our other esteemed members I still considered Gary my friend and enjoyed the banter we engaged in when he would question some of the enlightening facts about the Universe that I would post here.
So for you my friend, Gary, I offer this post about a celestial event that I know you have a ringside seat to.
When I look up at the Moon tonight and tomorrow night I will offer my thoughts, prayers, and deepest condolences to you and your family.
