Saint Zero - RIP

My husband, Saint Zero, introduced me to this board and this wonderfully eclectic group of people. He hasn't posted here in several years, but some of the older Dopers may remember him. James moved to Heaven this morning after a short and painful second round with mantle cell lymphoma. He passed over peacefully with our two children and me by his side. I was blessed to be his wife for 16 years. There will never be another like him.

I am so sorry. I knew James. I went to Murrah with him. I saw it on my Facebook today, but obviously I wouldn't have known you were his wife.

I am really sorry, he was a great guy. My best to you and your family.

Sorry for your loss. Ironically, my main memory of Saint Zero was this thread where he laments the loss of a long-time friend.

What made that event so memorable was that his (off-board) friend's name was "Dr. Watson," and just a few days later, a poster on this board named Dr. Watson was alleged to have died, causing some confusion.

(PS. The death of the SDMB poster named Dr. Watson was never confirmed or corroborated, and what little info there was seemed pretty flimsy)

I remember that! His best friend, Charles, passed, and his nick around here was Dr. Watson, so that's how James chose to remember him.
