A post came across the CyberTelecom mailing list this afternoon with the most apt quote I've seen for today's remembrance:

Good friends we have had, oh good friends we've lost

along the way

In this bright future you can't forget your past

So dry your tears I say

No woman, no cry

No woman, no cry

Little darlin' don't shed no tears

No woman, no cry

– Bob Marley
