R.I.P: John Nash and his wife just died.

My family and I just came home from a lovely barbeque and saw the following headline alert on a newsfeed:

http://www.cbsnews.com/news/john-forbes-nash-a-beautiful-mind-wife-killed-new-jersey-car-crash/

 

A Beautiful Mind is one of my all time favorite movies. I had never heard of John Nash or the love story that made up his relationship with his wife until I saw it. To be so mentally ill, yet able to go on (I think his wife had a lot to do with it) is a true testament to the strength of person and those that love him/her.

 

Sigh. A brilliant man and his lovely wife, gone in a quick minute. It's sad, but also reminds me to take every minute with my family, as a truly treasured one.

 

Damn it, this made me sad.
