Please offer him your condolences. He is a good fellow who has stuck by me through thick and thin. Many homeless days passed as he read my blog and offered words of support. Out of all the people I have encountered during my blogging days, he has been one of the most stalwart friends always wanting what is best for me. For that, I love him and will think of him all night as he goes through this hard time. God speed dear Pipe Tobacco and may your mother rest in peace.
