Steve Fossett: Wife Asks Court To Declare Legally Dead

Time to say to goodbye?

"As painful as it is for Mrs. Fossett, other members of the family and his many friends, it is time to initiate this process," said attorney Michael A. LoVallo, who filed the petition in Cook County Circuit Court. AP
Fossett disappeared September 3rd near Yerington, Nevada after taking off in a single engine plane headed for Bishop, California. A massive search effort was launched but so far his plane nor Fossett has been found.

Famous for trying to break world records, Fossett swam the English Channel, survived a 30,000 ft. plunge in a hot air balloon, completed the rugged Iditarod, set more than 100 aviation and distance records, Fossett lived his life on the edge.

What happened to Fossett on that fateful day back in September is still a mystery. Hopefully in the near future someone will come across the final resting place of Fossett's plane and his family can get some closure.

In the end Fossett lived his life the way few today do, full of zest and adventure, his death still an enigma.
For what is it to die,
But to stand in the sun and melt into the wind?
