My condolences to the Imahara family. I enjoyed watching his contributions, as a member of the Mythbusters team. He was way too young to be afflicted with such dangerous condition. My only sister passed away from a brain aneurysm, as well. My greatest concern at the time, was, that she didn’t pass, while in pain and I hope it was the same for him. Its a shock to lose a family member to such a thing. Again, my sincerest regrets to Grant Imahara’s passing and hope the pain felt, is shortened by the love and caring shown by his surviving family and friends.
