My condolences to you and your family. During difficult times this poem always gives me comfort.
The Peace of Wild Things
When despair for the world grows in me
and I wake in the night at the least sound
in fear of what my life and my children's lives may be,
I go and lie down where the wood drake
rests in his beauty on the water, and the great heron feeds.
I come into the peace of wild things
who do not tax their lives with forethought
of grief. I come into the presence of still water.
And I feel above me the day-blind stars
waiting with their light. For a time
I rest in the grace of the world, and am free.
— Wendell Berry
That's too bad. He was really a nice guy that I spoke to whenever I saw him at the Gatherings or Trail Days. I bought his last book. My best to you and your family.
Rest in Peace Model-T.

I just found out that I was mistaken by which Model-T has passed on. It wasn't the one I knew but my deepest sympathy still goes out to you. It's never a good thing when it happens even though he was out there doing something he enjoyed. Peace goes out to you and your family.
I lift up my eyes to the mountains
the LORD will watch over your coming and going
both now and forevermore. "Model T and all the Buckley Family"
Sorry to hear of your loss.
My thoughts are with you.
Wow...bummer. I've been reading Model-T's TrailJournal long before he hit the trail. Was anticipating some great stories as I really enjoyed his writing. Being older, he was an inspiration to this young 50-something.
Eternal rest grant unto him Lord and may perpetual light shine upon him. Amen.

Obviously this is a man who was loved by many people. The hiking community and his family and friends have lost someone who was great. We are all lessened by a loss such as this. We will keep you in our thoughts and prayers.
I am sorry for your loss.
It would be hard to explain to my daughters but if I have a choice, that is how I'll go.
He will walk with all of us for a while to come.
I hope comfort comes to you soon with more smiles each time you think of him.
RIP Model-T, prayers go out to his family and friends
