A Tribute to Robert Purves

We are in a time when we feel close to people with whom we have spoken no word; whom we'd not recognize on the street, but who, by their presence have filled a basic human need: kinship. However esoteric our connection, many of us feel connected to many others on this list, through their contributions, their forbearance, and their sly hints at humanity. Our computers are replete with that modest '"rp" seen in so many files. Eternity, or heaven, in one of its many forms, is to be found there. Bless you on your journey, "rp", as you have blessed us.
