    Assuming you knew him, @Fenway . It's probably a pretty small community. My condolences. ALS sucks. My grandpa had it.

    It is the absolute worst because you can't even say 'You'll beat this" because nobody does.

    As someone who's in the business I know how hard it is to say goodbye to someone so young and so talented.

    That picture with the cup is terrific. I am so sorry for your loss.
