    Thank you all for your prayers and well wishes. I have definitely used them and I appreciate them.

    The man who died, one of my wife's relatives, was one of the smartest man I've ever met. PhD in theoretical physics, his mentor studied under Albert Einstein. He worked at Johns Hopkins, then ended up as the Director of nuclear and radiation safety at West Virginia University, so that's where we are right now, Morgantown, West Virginia.

    The funeral was today, we're hanging out with family tomorrow, driving back on Thursday. I am exhausted, I don't think I've slept for more then five or six hours in as many days.

    He sounds like an incredible guy. Hope you get some shut-eye and have a safe trip home.
