The death of an American hero

It with deepest sadness that I have to tell of the death of SEAL. His wife Dinah wrote to me this morning that SEAL died in his sleep on May 31st of the terrible cancer that was fought off until it went into his brain and it shut down. He was not in pain and I told his wife, I would invite here to share your comments with her. She asked me to thank you all for your concerns with his last months here. His writings will be with us forever and I will miss him as a friend I never met.

    I will remember Seal as an astute intellect. Seal’ posts were always a learning experience for me. He was well read, well versed, and well written. I remember when it was becoming almost impossible for him to post on CHB, had not let us in on this fact, no one would have been able to tell by his last post…as he remained intelligent, articulate and brave to the end. May he rest in peace, and may his wife and family find comfort in the knowledge that Seal was admired and respected by folks who never had the pleasure of meeting him, yet felt we knew him.

    I really enjoyed talking about history with Seal and making correlations between various historical events and the implications of them, and as many posters have stated, Seal was a teacher, and posted on CHB even if he wasn’t feeling very well. Thank You Seal, you made a difference.

    I’ll remember seal as a patriot and intellectual. I’ll miss his comments and his point of view. His family will be in our prayers.

    SEAL has transcended this earthly plane, but I know his spirit lives within all of us who share his thoughts concerning our never-ending fight against the forces of tyranny stalking this great nation.

    Thanks SEAL for your service to the nation and for sharing your respected thoughts with the members of this forum.

    My sincerest condolences go out to his family and friends.

    Rest in peace my friend.

    I thought of SEAL as a teacher. That is about the highest compliment I know. He is sadly missed.
