This is an irreconcilable loss for humanity! We were fortunate to share his association, and as stewards, responsible to adopt his endeavors into our care, and conservancy. RIP (condolences)

Thanks for all your hard work on the Deepwater Horizon oil spill article. You may not get much appreciation here, but it means a lot to people that care about a healthy environment for themselves and even more so for the children. Gandydancer (talk) 16:35, 15 February 2013 (UTC)
