A good day to die? (part two)

Apparently the universe was doing something Sunday. First came Cindy’s email about Meggie, then my friend Courtney sent the news that her husband Neil had died (that’s him in the photo, part of a skit he was doing for a Mensa gathering).

Neil was a very cool dude. Civil liberties lawyer, amateur magician, expert on the history of magic, funny and decent. And he and Courtney fit together perfectly. At their wedding, his daughter (Courtney was his second marriage) said how happy she was that he’d found his soulmate, and he had.

Even though I only saw him a couple of times a year, i enjoyed his company, and his comments on my FB posts. And his occasional advice when I needed feedback on legal questions or sleight of hand for something I was writing.

But he had some running health problems, and they finally outran him. Damn.
