Fortitude in Snow

Goodbye, Sweet Tenor/Wonderful Man....

Luciano Pavoratti died yesterday, at home with his family at his villa in Italy, having battled pancreatic cancer since early last year.

He did great things, with great love (more than just singing opera); to what more can any of us aspire?

Rather than wax philosophic on the contributions this great man made, I'll just direct you to Bono's tribute to him, which is much better than I could write.

Goodbye, Luciano. Sting is right; the world is a smaller place without you in it. And surely, the heavens have gained another star.
