Musings and Meanderings

I wanted to share the very sad news that my cousin Jimmy has passed due to complications from the cancer he has been fighting for some time. Jim was the son of my Uncle Elias, who is my father’s older brother.
Although as adults we were not close, during college he and I hung out together a bit in my early years at Pitzer. I have very fond memories of him, and our prayers go out to his family. Sadly this is the second of Elias' children who have been afflicted in some way, as his younger brother Jeff is a survivor of a heart valve prolapse that caused a very debilitating stroke. Jeff and I were very close all through college, as he was with my brother Greg.
