Thanks for your message. Joe. If you get a chance to speak to Alan, please
let him know that so many on this forum are grateful for his contributions
to birds and wildlife photography. Alan's work will be remembered fondly,
and his contribution will go on thanks to his wonderful photographs.
Alan's at a place we'll all be one day, and it's good to know that he is
comfortable and without pain. Those of us who pray will say one for him.
Those who have met him will remember him, and those who only saw the
photographs will be richer for having enjoyed them.
