As most of the condolences and thoughts about Celttooth are being shared in the Cafe thread about his passing, I would hope that the casual observer would not think that the lack of posts in this thread are any indication of how beloved he was.

I might direct you to This thread.

He is missed by many.

My body may be here, but my mind is in a galaxy far, far away.

Have made friends here.
Most were cats.

I am so sorry to hear of his passing. He and I often exchanges stories and plans in PM as well as on Café Seti. His collection of Aurora Borealis photos and love of space will be missed. I fee both saddened and diminished. Our world just got a little smaller.
You will be missed Ian.

Here is a final:
