      Superman, et al, here's the link to what I found. If it is the wrong one, I hope someone corrects me.


      I was planning to send a note to the family, but I'll post something here if I can't find somewhere more appropriate. The Moore's site doesn't have a link up for an online tribute yet under his name.

    @@@banasy,,,,, things will get easier for all in time its a huge loss to the family here on CNN,,, i was shocked! He came on to talk a little bit and leeintulsa said he'll be off and on so that had me a little worried,,,, now i know why. The night before was a little strange and had me worried . We all must remember that "if" he was un comfortable then he now has his wingsamd is set free i see my father all the time when i go climbing as an eagle watching over me and clients,, lee will always be with us in many ways,,, but its still hard to come to grips with,,,,,,,,,the next time i go climbing i wish i had a photo of him and i would place it somewhere safe up high to watch over us so to say,,,

    @ mary, are YOU jealous? Perhaps if you were nicer to people and stop saying evil things all the time we might focus on you! Speaking only for myself, i have a natural affinity to mean people! I also am not fond of ppl that steal names and post garbage!
