I've been rereading my collection of his writings.
He lived a long life and he gave us much, I am selfish in saying that I wish he were still with us.

I just loaned a friend one of my very favourite books, "The City and the Stars". Not only was it the last book that my son and I read together...no longer a bed time story, but a chill-out ritual that ended when he turned 13...but I gave him a copy in hardcover so that he might come back to it from time to time. As I have since I was his age.

And so it goes...
