    I hope he didn't leave anything unsaid. That we benefited from all he had to offer.

    RIP Steve.

    So sad to see him pass. He was a great contributor to physics. He was always willing to ask the Great Questions. Sometimes he would answer, too.

    He's probably slapping his forehead at a realization somewhere--for the first time.

    One thing I'll remember him for was his courage to fight the disease he was stricken with. On science, he was right about a lot of things and helped me understand the BBT, but he was also wrong about some big things. RIP Mr. Hawking.

    He was worth admiration for so many things, not the least being the way he affirmed life despite it all.

    His life expectancy at 22 yrs was only a very short time. He lived on to 76... a triumph of personal endurance and a massive gift to mankind.

    Rest in peace. I admire him not just for what he accomplished but how he did not let his profound physical problems stop him from all that he accomplished. He's a model for anyone who faces physical challenges.
