I am quite saddened over this news. I enjoyed honglo's posts very much. He showed a sharp, inquisitive mind, the kind of company I like. Yet another reminder (I've had two deaths in the family, recently) that life is short and precious, and to be enjoyed as much as possible.
I join the others in requesting if there are directions the family wishes us to take, such as donating to a charity in honglo's name, I wish to know.
My condolences and prayers to honglo's family and friends, and to you, Mark. May he rest in peace.
Electricity makes refrigeration happen.
Refrigeration makes the HVAC psychrometric process happen.
HVAC pyschrometrics is what makes indoor human comfort happen...IF the ducts AND the building envelope cooperate.
A building is NOT beautiful unless it is also comfortable.
Mark, any ideas about setting up a donation fund for his family? Man, anybody who has been in this trade has surely given up family time(and received it from employees) for work emergencies, and we should help out if it is necessary, to keep the spirit alive. I know that you can't do this just for the money and be any good-you have to derive pleasure from the "it's fixed" feeling. I know that we could make a difference here for his family if he was the main paycheck. Maybe something w/paypal?
