I was a friend of Ian’s but not closer; this comes as a brutal shock. Still, I thank you
for informing us. Truly, I am stunned and upset.

Ian and I had our differences but those were of long ago. More recently, I wanted rather a
lot to work with him and possibly vice versa. Circumstances put that off—

Ian was also formerly a competitive weight lifter and had about him a boundless and infectious
energy. All the more to find this news so very shocking.

I would love to. I suspect, though, that JZA might have volunteer? He worked with Ian, I believe.

Thanks, Andrea.
