There is so little activity here on the RF forums anymore that I'm not even sure anyone will see this, but I wanted to offer my condolences on the tragic death of Dan Kaufman.  I did not know him, had never heard his name before, but as pictures flashed briefly on my local news station this evening I saw one that stood out from all the was obvious that that smiling face belonged to a fellow rennie, and suddenly a violent crime on the opposite side of the country mattered a bit more than it had just moments earlier.  My heart goes out to Ryan, and to all of you who knew Dan. May you find some measure of peace and comfort in the love and memories you have of him.  Love, Light, and Blessings to you from (just North of) Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.

I didn't know of Dan but I saw on Facebook that Broon had posted of his passing and I'd like to share what he wrote:
"There was a man, I didn't know him personally but I remember seeing him parade by waving a flag. I would always wave at him and he usually waved back. He passed away yesterday in San Bernardino after being shot. I wanted to take this moment and wave back once more. Hi, Daniel."

I know he will be greatly missed. My condolences go out to his family! <3

I, too, would like to offer condolences to those who knew him, to the entire Rennie community, and to humanity.

I am about to turn 64 years old. I don't know how much time I have left, but I sure would like to spend some small portion of that time in a world at peace. I am a realist, however. The only peace I will ever have is when I am gone, and that is a sad commentary.

Please try to expunge any trace of hatred or bigotry from your heart. At the rate things are going, we may not get another chance.
