Cass and I have never spoken, I've followed his posts for years with great interest but I don't post a lot.

The obit Frog posted confirms everything I had thought about Cass, that he truly was a giant among men.

I will pray for him and his family.

Godspeed Sir. Thank you for all you've done.

Rest in peace Warrior, you have guided generations and changed the face of warfare, made life better for millions, and set an example that men will strive to emulate for years to come. You Sir, will not be forgotten.

Fair winds and following seas, Cass.

I'm so very sorry to see this. What a true and great loss.

His dedication to his wife was exemplary. Isn't she still alive? How is she being looked after? No doubt he thought of all necessary arrangements, but it seems right to ask.
