That's so sad. It doesn't sound like he'll be back till late January.

I heard on ABC news that the funeral would be taped and relayed to Tani on the ISS. It's got to be hard to be on the assignment of a lifetime and not be able to be with your loved ones during this time.Do the right thing. It will gratify some people and astonish the rest. ~ Mark Twain

That is so tragic. My prayers are going to him and his family.
