You know, when I heard about his death, wrapped with sadness
for losing yet another one of our cultural giants, I was thinking
about his life and legacy, and suddenly you came to my mind.
I had a flashback of one evening, years ago [you were still
in the army, I think], and you talked - with your typical passion :)-
about this book, and about his courage in both life and writing,
thanking Gurvitz [I think it was] for 'throwing' the book on you.

That was my first closer encounter with his writing,
and I have you to thank for that.
What a man. We are indeed left with his words.
May he rest in peace.
