  1. BW was a long time patient of friend of my father in law’s, he phoned to wish Miss A a happy birthday this week and cried. What at tragedy.

    • Big loss for him, as for many others. There is, it seems to me, most often no rhyme or reason, no way to see these things coming. Say hello to your father-in-law for me, and tell him thank-you for his gracious and unexpected help my way a number of years ago!
