Thanks for posting of him.

He is well missed here. I think of him often. We were blessed that his big fish abilities decided to settle into our little pond here, that he seemed to have a place in his heart for this Futurebasic we have so enjoyed.

Probably have mentioned it, but for some reason last year, I was moved to write a tune for the first time in ages, and next morning, I saw the note of his passing.

I dedicated the song to him, in part because it speaks to life and our initial strengths at the beginning, then musically mirrors how illness strips away the outer layers of a person at times, as their life changes and they can no longer do what they could. Their core music continues on, until it fades, sadly, and we are left wanting.


He would of course point out that the title here completely ignores that the song runs just over three minutes. ;)
