Short biography
I hope that the notes from his family, and the website, stay up for a while, or at least that they all get archived somewhere.


The GoFundMe campaign is closed, but there are the comments for Gahan's last days, and it's very touching to see the love from his stepchildren (Paul Winters was a stepson).

Goodbye to you, brave soul.
