Today was a sad day as I learned that the person responsible for making my work possible has passed on. I recently wanted to see if I could meet Mr. Iannarelli but learned I was too late as he passed on December 25, 2015.
Although never getting that opportunity to thank him in person, I feel I know the man via his pioneering work that has enabled my success in identifying those who have hijacked humanity. I owe this man everything. I only wish I could have told him in person and shook his hand.
In this world, it’s unfortunate there are so few deserving of the title hero. Mr. Iannarelli was without a doubt one of them, and will always be my hero.
Thank you, sir, for your contribution to humanity.
