Crushed over James Kim news...

I've "known" CNET's James Kim ever since I jumped into the high-tech news world at The Terpin Group in 1999. So many of us have been following the story since it was announced earlier this week that James and his family were missing. We learned that his wife and daughters were rescued... read about the ordeal and the moments before James took off to go try to find help... the rescue of the girls... the tracking of James... the pants.... Earlier today, we readers easily imagined James coming through, and then having one helluva story for the rest of his life -- which certainly would have been a joyous and spectacular one. And now, instead, I am left admiring this guy -- this solid father, husband and human being -- so greatly, and feeling his loss so poignantly. Mr. Kim -- you will be sorely missed, and forever admired. Please rest in peace, knowing that the many people around the world who knew and loved you will embrace your family in your honor....
