Well I am so sorry to hear the news, although it was expected. I guess if there is any solace it is that he passed quickly after going into hospice. I have experiences with relatives that lingered and suffered and I wouldn't wish that on anyone. Blu really was a great guy. Although we only fished together a few times, I learned something everytime. He really was a brilliant guy in so many ways. They say there's a fine line between genius and insanity and I use to tell him that I thought he had one foot on either side of the line! Sorry that you have lost such a good friend. If you ever want to join up and wet a line, feel free to shoot me a line! I can always tell you you don't know what you're doing if it will help...lol.
