    Such a loss. Sincerest sympathies to Lei and the girls. Thank you for all the free coffee, it was always very much appreciated. I hope the doors of LimiTado never close … to keep his memory alive forever.

    You will be missed.

    Dont worry Tado even if you failed to reach your 40 years, or the 40 mountains.. your love for nature and simple life will surely bring you to heaven.
    You have given more meaning to our lives than those stinking senators and talentless actors and actresses could ever hope for.
