Launching is Optional... Landing? That Depends on Trees.

I found a link to a newspaper entry concerning Airobert (Robert Zylstra) that may be of interest to rocketeer friends.

Very sad.

Ironic that the memorial services will be held this Saturday morning while the TCC Dairy Aire makeup launch will be in progress.  Hopefully there will be a moment of silence.

So sad that he passed while on a trip with his family. I guess it must have been sudden.
What an awkward thing to have to deal with in a foreign land. So sad.
