I'm so sorry. My condolences to you and your family. Jules was a great man.

Thank you

It's more than a little comfort that he apparently decided it was time to go. I'm told that within the past few days, he said goodbye to his baby brother (some baby; Allan is well into his 80s) and his sons. He told them he was ready to go and stopped eating. He died at home and in his sleep, which I think is how we all hope to go.

I hesitate to use the word great, but if you mean that he was honest and lived with integrity, that he was well-loved by family and friends and that he stood by his convictions even when it was very hard, then ... yes, I guess he was.

Shit. You made my glasses fog up ...

Re: Thank you

Yeah, that's kind of the definition of great to me.

Hey, my mum in her library capacity would like to make some kind of mention and wanted to know if there was an obituary and whether she could use the photos in your post. Would that be okay?

Re: Thank you

With linkage and credit, tell your mum yes. And if it's an online thing (or even print), I'd be pleased to get a copy if it's reasonably convenient. (Hint: if it entails hours on the subway and psychodrama, nevermind, just tell her Yes.)

Also, I'd like to write you about a related (Jules) matter under separate (private) cover within the next day or three. Do you prefer Facebook or email (I think I have your correct email address)?

Re: Thank you

Deleted your reply, in the interests of your privacy.

I'll find out; I'm seeing her tomorrow anyway. My guess is online; she's big into the whole community outreach thing at work, hence her interest.

That works for me, just ask her to send me the link when it's live.

Either FB or e-mail is good.

And it turns out I still have your regular email address, very good. And thanks.

Wednesday the 4th, at home and in his sleep.
