Sad news about our friend Planter.. His friend posted this on Facebook.. It says it all..

I hate to be the bearer of terrible news, but it's my understanding that, very sadly, Graeme W. Smith has passed away. I have no other information than that, e.g. the specific circumstances. I am very, very sorry to have to break it here, but I think someone has to.
I knew Gray best in 1986, when I worked with him and he was nothing but an incredibly supportive mentor and elder brother type guy to me. He and I never once agreed on anything to do with politics, but that didn't matter, and made the friendship all the better, IMHO.
He was smart, funny, amazing at maths, programming and business, as his peerless academic achievements and work record shows. He was also just really personable, full of life and fun at his best.
I think his last few years were tough and I knew he had some issues. I kept trying to get him to give up on America and move on, but he seemed very stuck. There was a lot of stupid anger and feuds with people that seemed to take up a lot of his energy, needlessly.
Somewhere, a mad heavy metal band in Heaven has a great new drummer.
Thoughts, sympathies and the deepest condolences go out to all his family and loved ones.
Sorry.
Miss ya, Gray.

Bad news indeed. Condolences to those who knew him and who may read this page.
