    My condolences to his colleagues, family, and friends. It appears that he was one who worked in the trenches, doing his job well, without seeking or receiving public acclaim. He went too young, depriving his readers of more well-covered stories in the future.

    The girl in Rancho was the grand-daughter of a colleague/friend in the local public sector–my heart cracked again when you reminded me.
