So sorry to hear this.  I've been out of town and wasn't able to attend 
the RoboColumbus this year because of a funeral.  And now Will.  I 
second Karim's motion.  And if we don't have an honor roll, seems like a 
good time to start one.  Maybe just add a page to dprg.org.

And value all the folks who are still with us.
