Jacques Barzun was my mentor and friend, largely by correspondence, for well over forty years. The tributes rightly praise his encyclopedic mind, his intellectual generosity, his wide-ranging curiosity, his embodiment of excellence. Let us not forget that joined to his remarkably well-stocked mind, his sense of fairness, his delight in debate, was what I would call his sense of mirth. "From Dawn to Decadence" may portray decline, but as he observed it, Jacques always seemed cheerful, and amused.

Farewell to a hero. Condolences to his family and friends.

What a nice tribute to a man who gave his all in whatever he tried. My deepest condolences to the Barzun Family and all who stayed close by him in all his trials. Take comfort in the promise God gives us, that one day, no resident will say "I am sick" but all can look forward to the opportunity to live forever.(John 17:3)

Rest in Peace, dear friend. Ruth and I shall miss you, terribly.
