Jeremy, Julie and I just learned of your father's death and it is a great loss. Julie has been a friend of your father ever since you were a kid and had kept up with you through him. I have only known your dad for about a dozen years or so and thought he was magic on the keyboard. I kept asking Julie if she had heard from him recently and she finally went looking for him online this morning and found he was no longer with us. You have our deepest sympathy in his passing as his was a true loss to the rest of the world.
