I just heard the news of Jasper's passing, I'm so sorry. My heart goes out to his family. I worked at the library he would frequent. I knew some sign language and would enjoy conversing with him when he came in. Our conversations were often brief, however I will always treasure those times. I'm glad I had the opportunity to get to know you. It always made my day when you came in and we got to talk. It was an honor knowing you.
