Maureen Basil passed away yesterday. She was a brilliant and charismatic and artistic person and a surpassingly generous Mom. People who befriended her knew how lucky they were. She was diagnosed with Stage 4 cancer the day before my Dad’s memorial service a few weeks ago. In her last days she was content and radiant and witty. The above photo was taken in Montreal about 40 years ago. The one below, a good deal earlier, I think! My parents truly adored one another.

Hi Bob. I’m sorry you have lost so much in such a short time. How lucky you were to have had parents who loved each other so.

Oh Bob, my heart weeps for you. I cannot fathom the depths of your sorrow. In your sadness please don’t lose sight of the many decades of mutual love you were blessed to enjoy with your wonderful parents. I will keep you close in my thoughts Dear Friend.
