I guess we were about 9 years old...Alan and I were shooting baskets in his neighbor's driveway. Alan taught me that when I missed a shot, I had to say  "f#%k"....that's what everyone said when one missed a shot.  He learned that from the older boys and I learned a new and very usefull word from Alan that day....and also got in big trouble with my father for using my new language addition when he told me I couldn't buy candy one Sunday morning. I still say "f#%k" when I miss a shot.  Thank you Alan...I'll miss you Old Friend.

Alan was a lovely guy. Smart and wonderful to talk with and charismatic in a quiet way. In our junior year, he invited me to the Randall's Island Jazz Festival.  I didn't know anything about jazz beyond loving Mel Torme. Alan knew everything. He opened my ears that night. I remember him talking about Coltrane in the most fascinating, knowledeable way. I'm not surprised he did so much with his way too short life.

I reunited with Alan at our 50th Reunion.  We had great talks and  e- mailed back and forth the

past few years.  The last time we were together was after a GNN ladies lunch, he walked me back to

Port Authority so I could get the bus to go back upstate. I know how sick he was, but he always seemed

to pull through.  This is so sad....glad we had that time together.  I will miss him.
