  •  Uh, yes, when a healthy 38 year old (6+ / 0-)

    man suddenly shows up dead, we all think it is an apparent heart attack, absent contrary details. That was suggested in the professor's original death notice on Dave's blog, based on speculation from Dave's sisters. Perhaps I did not speak with perfect precision in every comment last night.

    But we still don't know the cause of death.  Perhaps we never will.  The funeral is tomorrow, and I haven't seen anything reported about cause of death results.

    •  Thanks, good clarification on your part. (4+ / 0-)

      I just don't think that other poster should feel bad about thinking it was a heart attack when that's what he'd read here. At the same time we don't want a post by accident starting new rumors either. Thanks for clearing that up.

    •  Thanks to both of you (3+ / 0-)

      for treating this delicate matter so evenhandedly.

      We all find ourselves prone to speculation sometimes, and it's a hard habit to break.

      I hadn't remembered that it was Timaeus who first posited a cause; doesn't matter who, anyway; I hope we're all united in our agreement that the loss from any cause of a voice like Dave's is tragic even to non-family.
