    Horrible, horrible thing

    This article is about a friend and coworker of my daughter. The events played out on Christmas eve.

    This is so horrible.

    That poor man, that poor family.

    A Michigan doctor who went missing last week and was found dead in a frozen pond Tuesday is being remembered by loved ones and a neighbor. Dr. Bolek Payan was a board certified psychiatrist.
    Every moment of a life is a horrible tragedy, a slapstick comedy, dark nihilism, golden illumination, or nothing at all; depending on how we write the story we tell ourselves.

    D***, that sucks all around.

    Well wishes to the family. This is just a terrible way to close out a year.
    life itself was a lightsaber in his hands; even in the face of treachery and death and hopes gone cold, he burned like a candle in the darkness. Like a star shining in the black eternity of space.

    "But those men who know anything at all about the Light also know that there is a fierceness to its power, like the bare sword of the law, or the white burning of the sun." Suddenly his voice sounded to Will very strong, and very Welsh. "At the very heart, that is. Other things, like humanity, and mercy, and charity, that most good men hold more precious than all else, they do not come first for the Light. Oh, sometimes they are there; often, indeed. But in the very long run the concern of you people is with the absolute good, ahead of all else..."

    "You come from the Lord Adam and the Lady Eve", said Aslan. "And that is both honour enough to erect the head of the poorest beggar, and shame enough to bow the shoulders of the greatest emperor on earth; be content."

      I'm so sorry to read about that, B. Sending all the good and comforting vibes to all that are affected by this terrible loss.

        That's terrible. I wish their family healing in this time of grief.

          Peace and rest to him and the family. Death is rarely good news, but this sounds like soul crushing news to get. Hopefully the examination can shed some light on what might have happened.
