Robert H. Weeks, Captain, USN, Ret. (1930-2008)

In the Bhagavad Gita, standing between the two armies on the battlefield of Kuruksetra, one of the first things Krsna says to Arjuna is,

Never was there a time when I did not exist, nor you, nor all these kings; nor in the future shall any of us cease to be.
Dad was one of the kings. I miss him already. I hope we meet again some day.

Mark,

So sorry to hear that your Dad died recently. I don't know you at all in some sense, but I have REALLY appreciated your considerable wisdom in hosting for a long time (now no longer) the chess site on About.com. I feel like I've learned a lot from both you and where you've pointed me to. It's been such a labor of love for you to put in all this time and thought and care.
I'm sure your Dad was a very special man and very proud of you.
I'm sorry for your loss.

Yours respectfully,
Kevin fr. Philadelphia
