I never knew TClark, but I have read many of his posts over the years and appreciated his presence on this forum.

Thoughts and prayers for his family.

I wonder if the Vans have any sense of what's happened...

I wrote this for Daryl Christensen, another sad loss:

Emptiness reigns and sad entropy rules
The day a great workman puts down all his tools.
There's dearth and decay, with so much to repair,
The workshop goes silent with nobody there.

The knowledge and skill both go flitting away.
There's no one to do, think, to know what to say.
Where now shall we go, who else might we find
With knowledge or wisdom to match that stilled mind?

A throw-away world won't meet our demands
For good careful work by such skilled, careful hands.
His pride in his labors and thoughtful replies
You saw him, you knew him surpassingly wise.

It cannot be true, yet you know that's so.
Respect joins with anger, and fades into woe.
He's gone. I'm left dumbstruck, my mind's thread unspools.
It's sad when a great workman puts down his tools.

Appropriately Kipling-esque, Rob, well done!

tclark always seemed like a very fine fellow, he'll be missed by those who loved him.

That's just terrible. We never met, yet we all sorta do here.

Very Sorry to all who knew him.

Bus in Peace.
