    Christoper Reeve passed away last night. He turned out to be a real life HERO for many people, he will be missed. If you have a feeling about the research he was involved in, I know you will keep him in mind when needed.

    Not despite, but even more because of his deeds after his tragic accident in 1995, I regard Cristopher Reeve as an greater

    S U P E R M A N

    in his personal life, compared to the big screen CR.

    Rest in Peace, Cristopher.

    It makes me really sad that the thing he wanted to do the most was hug the son that was born after his accident. He said that was one of the driving motivations that kept him trying to get better, walk and help raise money for spinal injury research. He raised 40 million dollars for their foundation, but, I bet he would have rather been able to hug his son for the first time.

    He is free now to walk and to fly. He has provided inspiration to many people. He will be missed but not forgotten.

    :'( After a twenty plus year stent in the U.S. military, I can say the best leaders were thoes who lead by example.

    I would have followed him.

    Rest in peace.

    Thanks
