RIP, Stephen Hawking 1942 – 2018

Like many others, I was deeply saddened by the loss of Stephen Hawking at the age of 76.

This is a man who was given two years to live in 1963, when he was first diagnosed with Lou Gehrig’s disease.   He proved his doctors wrong.

Hawking was living proof that no matter what obstacles or challenges you have, you can still reach for the stars.   He did in a big way.    Stephen Hawking’s body may have been a terrible burden to him, but he was blessed with a beautiful mind that allowed him to open doors to the universe and let the rest of us through.

I just saw this picture and had to share it because I was so moved.  I have no idea who the artist is, sorry.

    Though I know it is a loss to the scientific world, in a way I was happy that he went on his own.

    He had asked for euthanasia and that showed how much pain he must be enduring.

    He is one of the ironies of the life a rare mind with a rare physical disease.

    God bless his soul.

    Thanks for sharing the picture. It is beautiful. I was shocked at how grief-stricken I was by Stephen Hawking’s death. And then I felt joyful and I thought, “You go, you gorgeous spirit. I hope I get to meet you out there somewhere.”
