Farewell dear friend.

Although I never met him personally, he has been with me all my adult life.

I'm saddened by his passing, but still chuckling at the jokes that I'm remembering.

I fondly remember being able to tell when there were other fans of his on the train in the morning by the massive increase of laughter and giggles I could hear whenever a new book came out.

I still can't get the name of the local school right - Bangabandhu Primary always comes out as Bhangbhangduc.

The handle 4ecks was pilfered from The Last Continent.

Another beer in your honour Sir!
