Noah Salasnek. He changed the whole style of snowboarding in the 90's from really taking park riding to a new level of skate-influenced riding to pushing the limits of what any boarder or skier had ever gone down big mountain riding in AK. His run down super spines TB6 was the most incredible run id ever seen done at the time. Cancer sucks.
Sadie, our 12 year old greyhound. Had very aggressive bone cancer and did not respond well to medication. Not the first time we have had to put to sleep a pet, nor was it a surprise, but still emotional to deal with, as I'm sure any pet owner would know. She had a good and long life.

+1 - we lost one of our pups last fall and it's truly heartbreaking. My condolences TT.

Sorry for your loss, our dogs are our lives.
My mother passed away Thursday after a long battle against a slow agonizing degenerative brain disease. For many years doctors gave no answers to why or how things were becoming more difficult for her. Not Alzheimer, but rather a slow gradual brain atrophy that we were finally told (too late) could result from any of several neurological diseases (all of which I had never heard). Despite all of her systems and body functions being affected she fought to retain what she could. She was aware of her condition, which made it more difficult to witness, and was aware of what was happening around her despite not being able to speak at times. She had a lucid conversation with me just a week ago. 1 month ago she was laughing and smiling at her 88th birthday despite having to have everything done for her. Caring for her over the last several years became increasingly difficult and time consuming with 2015 pretty much consumed by caring for her 24/7. In 2016 she went into long term care when it was no longer safe to keep her at home. My father and I visited her daily to spent time with her and to feed her. The last few years have been incredibly difficult, but I am fortunate to have had many bright moments with her along the way. It also brought us closer together. Now that she's gone, I'm happy that she is now at peace but very sad as I miss her dearly, probably more so because of the amount of time spent together while helping her over the last several years. RIP Mom.

As a fan and a cyclist it was tough news to hear over last weekend. RIP.

RIP Gregg. I also was listening to them last night - SACD's of Eat a Peach and Live at the Fillmore East. The latter is one of the best live albums ever recorded (especially in hi rez Surround which is ideal for live concerts).
