I'm so sad...I just found out that a high school beau, my first love really, committed suicide (apparent) and I hardly know what to think. He was a brilliant scientist and as I read through several of his obits it's hard to know or understand how such a brilliant, personable (not at all stodgy, even as his stature in the world of Astronomy grew) man could think his life not worth living...there had even been talk of a Nobel prize.
I'm so sad for his family, his children, his partner...
