Mike was a good guy. Always wanted to do good for Novato. Was on so many commissions and committees,Read More yet was never afraid to get out and get his hands dirty cleaning up after some public event or another. A real small town community leader. We'll really miss his humor too.

This is always such an unfair unecessary tragedy to me; a lovely young man w/ wife, and kids beingRead More beaten by this horrible disease. Life is not fair, and my heart goes out to his wife and those children. I am sad enough about Andy Lopez's tragedy, then this. This little online paper is my morning time reading - wish it would post some happier topics to uplift our sad violent world. My ex father in law, long deceased from this cancer too once said to me as a young early 20 something, "Baby.. the good die young.." he'd lost his wife to an inoperable brain tumor that has spread after a mastectomy then it got him right after retirement from same job he worked for over 35 yrs; he never got to enjoy his golden years for very long; just a year or so, had planted a little garden, moved out of the city, to grow things, and had a neat as a pin little cottagey rental he adored. So when this evil disease takes down a young man w/ a family and little ones, it's horrible, like that awful Alzheimer destroying one's life rendering them to a degrading hopeless helplessness destroying their dignity and is not curable, while creating so much suffering for the family, the one's that care; then I wonder, what about the poor souls who get left to die alone and are abandoned by family, because they think the suffering patient can't recognize them anyway. It's so so sad.

Bon voyage Hans. I'm glad to have known you.

I only met him a dozen times when we were photographing the same event for different newsRead More organizations, but I always enjoyed our brief chats. He seemed like a wonderful and kind man, as well as an outstanding photographer. I will miss him.

I' m "so wicked pissed" along with you, Cate. Thanks for your personal and sympatheticRead More description of the attitudes and actions of your Boston community. Riding the Green Line past Copley will from now on give way to a silent moment or two.
Dave Lecuyer April 18, 2013 at 12:56 am
You really captured the moment. Beautiful writing.

Cate, hope you did not have any friends or family directly affected by the bombing.

Nicolas Olson and Jake Velloza are memorialized on a new monument along with the others on theRead More Avenue of the Flags at the Civic Center in San Rafael. This monument was made possible by donations from the community and was fully funded in less than 60 days. Now that 10 years have passed I and others think that it would be appropriate to name the NHS football field for him. There is a stone by the NHS flag pole that has a plaque listing all the Novato men who were killed in Viet Nam. WE NEED TO DO SOMETHING - is anyone out there interested in helping? John Sammons

Beautiful eyes. May her memory be for a blessing.
Franklin Carter March 16, 2013 at 06:14 pm
She was as her name suggests. She was a beautiful girl both inside and out. I'm am so sorry for thisRead More tragedy, for her family and those who loved her. And, for those who are still in the hospital, pray they recover fully to live life, remembering it is a gift that can be taken away in the blink of an eye.
