My friend G. just sent word that Brian Cudmore, one of my favourite people, died this morning at 3:00 a.m.
Brian has been almost about to die so often over the last 5 years that I sort of got to believe that perhaps he would live forever: every time he was on death’s door, he made an amazing surprise recovery, and kept living. Alas, this time not.
Brian lives on, of course, through his son Chris, and daughters Cynthia and Carolyn; indeed in each of them you can see some of him.
I know they will miss him dearly. As will I. Good-bye, Brian.
