As regular readers know, Roger Mellott is one of my all-time favorite stress management and personal growth gurus.
The “late” Roger Mellott, that is. Someone asked me what happened to him and how long ago, especially since his booking info is still to be found online.
I was embarrassed to realize I didn’t even remember exactly when it happened. I remember being very sad because I had really hoped to see him live one day.
I had also wanted to write him to tell him how much of a difference his amazing audio course (Stress Skills for Turbulent times) had made in my life.
And then he died. This taught me a lesson about procrastination. Not that I always remember. But just writing this brings it back.
If we want to tell someone how much they mean to us, or how much of a difference they’ve made in our lives, we better do it when we have the chance!
So I went and found some traces of what happened. NASA used to have a very nice memorial page for ihim, but I can’t find it right now. The only things I could find are here:
And here’s what I found on Google:
The first link no longer works, but the second one still does, and it leads to the entry above on NASA’s website.
Roger was pretty much NASA’s house stress management expert, and they had some very nice entries about him when he passed away. His memorial service was on February 12, 2006. So it’s been more than 3 years.
Do I know what happened? No. I would love to know, so if anyone knows more and would like to share, or simply wants to leave a comment in memory of Roger and his work, please do.
