It happens to the best of us

Ouch. I just found out that one of my favorite professors of all time, Dr. James Mehegan of Riverside Community College, passed away of a heart attack last week, doing what he loved the most: kayaking. It is because of him that I am a geology major, and he has had such a huge impact on my life.

Last week as I left for my SCEC trip and driving up coast near Santa Barbara, I was reminded of a similar trip that I had made long ago in his class and made a mental note to write him an email when I returned. Too late now I suppose. 🙁

You will be missed Jim. Thanks for everything.
