Reminds me of Tennyson's poem Crossing the bar:Sad to hear of Jim passing. He convinced me that electricity didn't go to the ground (soil) but return to source in the utility transformers (the ground is only used as conductor). Maybe it can be applied to Life as well. Life doesn't go to the ground (6 feet under) but return to Source (of wherever we all came from). Rest in Peace Jim (in the Source or Beyond where someday we are all destined to be).
Sunset and evening star,
And one clear call for me!
And may there be no moaning of the bar,
When I put out to sea,
But such a tide as moving seems asleep,
Too full for sound and foam,
When that which drew from out the boundless deep
Turns again home.
Twilight and evening bell,
And after that the dark!
And may there be no sadness of farewell,
When I embark;
For tho' from out our bourne of Time and Place
The flood may bear me far,
I hope to see my Pilot face to face
When I have crost the bar.
That made me remember another Jim Hardy gem:
Aaaaa Old Jim we loved him it hurts yes it's known and proven that a spouse is likely to pass soon after his/her beloved life partner passes -- may Old Jim be commended to all that brought him into being -- he will be sorely missed.His wife just passed away recently. I wonder if that contributed. So sad.
I support that. We are, before nationality, religion, or anything else, humans. Let us pledge to make sure that humanity doesn't get wiped off from this world.Very sad demise---- What a nice fellow he was. Just saw his snap and was impressed by his great personality. I wish his soul rest in peace. That is the destiny of all of us. Sooner or later we are bound to die. Let,s spend this time in serving the humanity, respecting each other regardless of our race, color, language, geography etc. etc. Sorry death news make me emotional sometimes.
He actually helped me in one of my question. So sad that he is passed awayIt is with profound sadness that I must report that we've learned legendary PF brother @jim hardy passed away earlier this week. Jim was loved by countless members here and was an incredibly positive force for the community and all our outside readers. A genuine man, we always paid close attention to his posts as we knew they were full of Insight. Rest in Peace jim! You will always be remembered here as a legend. PF and our engineering forums will not be the same. His efforts here live on! Please feel free to give your thanks here and share a memory.
