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.
