Dr. Hawking has passed on. There aren’t enough words to properly formulate a statement that would be accurate or worthy at this moment. He gave us Cosmology and its significance. For this old mad scientist, he was a hero; for all of us, he shaped part of our future. There would be no math without him and his mind. He did no more and no less that what is expected of each one of us; it was enough to make his life a grand one; Respect. I will miss his sense of humor almost as much as his shining brilliance; a true human being. Thank you Stephen, from all of us.
