No Loss of one of our regulars

I was wondering what happened about Not_Done_Living's quest with regard to adopting a foster child and realized he hadn't posted since August 12. When I googled his name I found this:

http://obittree.com/obituary/ca/onta...dimou/2683842/

It looks like he died on the same day that he last posted here .

Sad news. I was always impressed by how he didn't give up against beuracracy to keep pushing for the adoption.

Oh no! I'd been regularly checking because I was anxious to read good news. I'd not yet thought to google for him. This is so sad and tragic. That poor family.

I am embarrassed to say I had forgotten about his struggle to adopt. And now he's gone.

I hope the foster daughter got a miracle and still got adopted.

I found another obituary for him from a podcast:

So sudden and so sad I was rooting for him here from the sidelines... It sounds like this group of Disney fans set up a memorial donation to the Dave Thomas Foundation for Adoption in his memory.
