Aren't we going a little overboard with all the sobing over the death of a fellow Upser, instead of feeling sorry for ourselfs try to celebrate his life and be greatful he lived as long as he did.
Death is part of life
No Pas, we are not going "overboard".
Lamentation is not sobbing.
All of the posts seem to show a sense of loss and sympathy for his family.
The celebration of his life will be conducted by his family and all the people his life touched.
I think we feel the loss of one of our own and only wish strength for his family.
I did not know the man, but I can relate to how his death can effect others.
And yes, life should be celebrated, daily.
