    We’re losing some great ones with talent that I’m sure can’t be replicated.:(

    Even if we can replicate the DNA faithfully, the formative experience which made these souls such luminous giants CAN'T be reproduced in the sad and ugly world that has superseded the one these folks grew up in. But we CAN REMEMBER THEM, REVERE THEM AND TEACH OUR CHILDREN TO AVOID OUR MISTAKES!
