So sad

BBC NEWS | Entertainment | Kung Fu star Carradine found dead

Like many of the commenters on his official website, I grew up in the 70s and 80s watching Kung Fu on the TV. He was somewhat a hero of mine and an almost-crush. He was also awesome in Kill Bill - and everything else I have ever seen him do.

That reminds me, I have a Tai Chi DVD of his somewhere in the storage unit. I MUST dig that out.

Young Caine: Master, what is the best way to meet the loss of a loved one?
Master Kan: By knowing that when we truly love, it is never lost... It is only after death that the depth of the bond is truly felt, and our loved one becomes more a part of us than was possible in live.
Young Caine: Are we only able to feel this toward those whom we have known and loved a long time?
Master Kan: Sometimes a stranger, known to us for moments, can spark our souls to kinship for eternity.
