Thank you for your additional report on John's funeral. It adds to my memory of what was a very special day: even more than most funerals, it was a strange mixture of grief and celebration.
It was very nice to meet you last week, although I'd rather it had been in happier circumstances. You mentioned that you have been collecting tributes to John for the HPM newsletter: I'm sure David Fowler would like to add them to the ones he's collecting as he's planning to produce some sort of printed collection in due course.
You asked me what I think of the HPM website. I like it! (I'm talking about the one by Dr. Katie Ambruso.) The look is very attractive (though I have a very fast internet connection: some of the graphics, especially on the front page, might take a long time to download over a phone line). Some of the content is out of date (referring to meetings in April), but I know myself how hard it is to keep up with these things. the newsletters are a valuable and interesting resource, and the links page must be very valuable. but overall the textured background gives the site a very nice feel.
