Fair Winds and Following Seas

My heart is leaking out my eyes.

Lex was an amazing man. One of the few bloggers I respected deeply, and about the only one whose comments here on this wasted space could make me SQUEEEEE when I saw he had left one. We only ever had one actual conversation, in a Milblog conference chat room, but that is so often the way of the internetz.

So many have been able to be eloquent where I can't. Start here. Then here. And here.

My love and condolences to his family, who I know much about but have never had the privilege of meeting. Thanks for sharing the Captain with us. He was one of a kind.

Okay, I now have a new standard to achieve: making CalTechGurl *SQUEEEEE* when I leave a comment....

That's Lex for ya. Always raising the bar.

And closing it.

It's so hard to find any words.
