Extremely sad news

Post by megman » 02-26-2008 12:53 PM

I came across some very sad news yesterday (not the way one should come across it, but that's for another time).

Many old timers here will remember the dynamic duo of Frank and rabbit. In the early days of FF, things were falling apart at the old Art Bell forum where some of us posted with Frank and rabbit. The 2 were responsible for getting many of into crunching SETI@home.

When The ABF collapsed they steered many of us in the direction of the FF. I am extremely grateful to the two of them for these things and many more.

Frank Price unfortunately died May 9, 2003. God rest his soul.

Yesterday news came down that rabbit has cancer and only 2-6 months to live.

This is a very sad day indeed.

For those of you who remember rabbit, and even those who don't, let's keep him in our thoughts and prayers. There is still time for a miracle and if anyone deserves one its rabbit!:(

I'm not an Original, Megman, and so I never knew Frank or rabbit. But your post touched me deeply. Be assured rabbit is in my prayers.

Meg,

Thanks so much for sharing this sad news with us ..... So many of us Old Timers found FF as a result of Frank, Skosh, and The Rab's massive work for SETI.

My best to The Rab and Debbie. Just wish we could make things better for them ...... :cry

I remember you fondly. Wouldn't it be something if Frank and rabbit brought the Old-Timers back together. What a legacy.

Just a thought. Prayers are with you all.
