This is obviously sad, but I’m just happy for him that he had a good, long and productive life.
As usual, an excellent piece by Mr. Kemp
You are right. It’s sad to see him go, but wonderful that he lived such a long and productive life. When people this vital pass away at such an old age one tends to forget they are even gone.
Its like Jim Dickinson (who passed away on Saturday) said in the epitaph he wrote for himself: I’m just dead; I’m not gone.
When I was a wee toddler this was my favorite song. I made my father play it over and over and I would dance.
