    Re: Dear Community: Some Sad News



    I didn't know him very well. However, from what I read of his posts I could tell he was an extremely intelligent dude (much smarter than I was at his age). I really appreciated insight he gave.

    ing for his family.

      That hits hard...

      JSDileo and I interacted a couple of times in the forums, and it was always a pleasure.

      I'm stunned to learn he was so young. He did mention it often enough in discussion, but that detail never really sank in for me. His posts showed an exceptional level of maturity, and also lots of real critical insight. My main hang out here is the science forums, where he also showed up from time to time. He had a lively mind and a heap of ability, and a thoroughly pleasant personality to go with it.

      My deepest sympathy goes out to his friends and family. All beauty has its season, and none of us are here for long. JSDileo had less time than most of us, and that's tragic. But he's used it well and the echos linger.

          Yes. A good sense of humour too.

          And a heaven in a wild flower
          Hold infinity in the palm of your hand,
          And eternity in an hour"
