Thanks for that. I only met Orville in person once. I believe is was the year you guys were at Boston together. We chatted for a while in the Pru Center after the race. We got to know each other over the Internet. He sent me an e-mail in response to something I'd posted here. That set us onto a series of exchanges. It turns out that the name of the city closest geographically to his birthplace in Timmins and my last name are the same. He got a kick out of that and I promised him I would visit there some day. It will be a heck of a road trip.
Eventually we got to be Facebook friends. But I saw fewer and fewer posts from him. I suspected he was winding down and sadly I was right.
