I never got to know him well enough before he moved to Montréal, but considered him a friend nonetheless. I created illustrations that accompanied some of his writing early in my illustration career. He was very kind to me and never failed to make me laugh. Last time I saw him was on stage in The Haunted Hillbilly. We never did get together for that cocktail. RIP, my friend.
