Dear Fulvia,

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 Some of the content is out of date (referring to meetings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.

Best wishes
