Brant, I've been out of town for a couple of days and only now got to read this. Very well done, my friend.

Poignant article, Brant.

Sad news of Cobb's passing. Like most people in the public eye that we admire and respect, he was immortal in our mind.

Makes me feel a bit worse that we were so close geographically and I never met him.

And I doubt he would have liked "Pickelhaube" being translated as "spike".

He was a great contributor to our hobby.  The passing of him and his wife is sad indeed.  Thank you Brant for the great obituary for GH.

I created Find a Grave memorials for Jim and Angela. Please let me know if I made any errors or if there is information you feel should be added.

Based on SIL's info, I found Cobb's obit in the Odessa, MO paper, but they don't make them available online - you have to order a paper copy.
