Here is a photo of Fred Clarke Arthur's brother and I at the Galle Face Hotel in Colombo Sri Lanka. It was right after Sir Arthurs Funeral
His brother was a great man in his own right and just passed away last month.

There is a new book out by Neil McAleer called Odyssey of Sir Arthur C Clarke. It is a great read and fills in some of Arthur's life with details we were not aware of...excellent book.

For Arthur...Even in death he would not compromise his vision.

The famed science fiction writer, who once denigrated religion as "a necessary evil in the childhood of our particular species," left written instructions that his funeral be completely secular, according to his aides.

"Absolutely no religious rites of any kind, relating to any religious faith, should be associated with my funeral," he wrote.

WEEP NOT FOR ME


Do not weep for me when I no longer dwell among the wonders of the earth; for my larger self is free, and my soul rejoices on the other side of pain...on the other side of darkness.

Do not weep for me, for I am a ray of sunshine that touches your skin, a tropical breeze upon your face, the hush of joy within your heart and the innocence of babes in mothers arms.

I am the hope in a darkened night. And, in your hour of need, I will be there to comfort you. I will share your tears, your joys, your fears, your disappointments and your triumphs.

Do not weep for me, for I am cradled
in the arms of God. I walk with the angels, and hear the music beyond the stars.

Do not weep for me, for I am within you;
I am peace, love, I am a soft wind that caresses the flowers. I am the calm that follows a raging storm. I am an autumns leaf that floats among the garden of God, and I am pure white snow that softly falls upon your hand.

Do not weep for me, for I shall never die, as long as you remember me...
with a smile and a sigh.

The people around Sir Arthur are of a class that stand alone. He surrounded himself with the best of the best. Hector his friend and business partner, Nalaka his associate and friend, and Rohan one of the best photograpers on the planet. I was fortunate to have met them all.....thank you for your time and efforts.

Arthur C. Clarke was the greatest futurist of our time. He will be long remembered, along with Isaac Asimov, Carl Sagan and Jules Verne as the men that saw the future. I would not be surprised if the men and women of the future build a religion around him, which would of course be the ultimate irony for Sir Arthur C. Clarke, for those who knew him.

He inspired me and continues to inspire me to reach for the future and to see our species find the technologies that are so important for us to succeed here on earth and around our solar system.

Mr. Clarke, I thank you once again for your many wonderful and inspiring stories.

Neal
