Mr. Lasley’s Passing

Greg Lasley passed away this evening from double lung transplant. This is a very sad day and I’ll say that I am heartbroken. A mentor to thousands here on iNat and in the birding, odonata and naturalist communities, his legacy will forever live on. 2021 is throwing challenge after challenge at us.
I missed meeting Greg by one day a while back. There is no way that I could go back and make it different, although I wish with every fiber in my being that I could. Greg was an inspiration to me, and I don't know if I would be where I am now. In short conversation with him here on iNat, I could tell that he was one of the most caring and knowledgeable people ever. His knowledge and kindness pushed me in 2020 to try to become a better naturalist and birder. I greatly miss him. Rest In Peace @greglasley

Thanks @sambiology for sharing that. This is all just really disheartening and sad.
