I was just thinking of you, Derwood, and was going to get in touch when I got back from a trip to Michigan yesterday. Instead, I found you had passed away. Your wisdom, your patience, your skills with things no one knows how to do any more and your kind and gentle spirit will all be sorely missed. I hope I don't miss the announcment of when the memorial will take place because I want to be there. My heart goes out to Susan and all Derwood's other family, friends and those of us he mentored.
