It’s been a hard couple of weeks here. After a frighteningly short 3 week battle with an aggresive form of stomach cancer, Chas Friedman, Nikki’s step-dad, died last Saturday. It’s been a huge shock to all of us but, obviously, has had the biggest impact on Rae, Nikki’s mum, who has lost her partner and soul-mate of 20 years.
Chas was an extraordinary guy. A professor of mathematics at UT Austin, jewelry maker, woodworker, computer programmer, web designer, player of just about any musical instrument you care to imagine and speaker of several languages including Russian and Japanese which he taught himself.
We’ll miss him enormously.
