What a way to go, though, doing what you love and seemingly almost instantly.

"He was very still, sitting upright with his guitar on, wearing the coolest hat and a beautiful rust suede jacket," Rigby wrote on Facebook. "I just want the picture to be as graceful and dignified as it was, because it at first looked like he was just taking a moment."


Thats the way to go. Peacefully doing what you love.
