    a dear friend of mine, a kindred soul, someone who I was "sympatico" with. A man, just a few years younger than me, who had a cancer like mine but more aggressive and relentless. I mention this here as he had the wonderful experience of playing tabla in an opening act for a performance of Procol Harum, back some many years ago. He had lived in Tibet and learned the instrument there. In later years he was an accomplished university professor (a medievalist in history) and a searcher for truth and for the creator. I can honestly say that I loved (and still love) this man and his family. Alan, rest well, and enjoy your eternity!

    I'm sorry you lost your friend.

    I lost my best friend a few years ago. Words fall short, but they're all I've got.

    Cherish your memories.

    Peace.

    Some 30 odd years ago I had a real fascination with Tibet but never went there. Other things you describe ring a bell with me. Your friend sounds like some-one I would have got on well with

    Sympathies for your loss. Nothing more precious that the love of a true friend. Alan was very fortunate to have you as one. Peace.

    That was a very nice eulogy.

    Your friend was very lucky to have a friend like you.

    May he, and you both find peace.

    Mike
