Farewell Grace Marton and Ralph McCarthy.

It seems an awful lot of people I know have died recently.

Grace hired me for my first job after leaving Hawaii and coming back to Humboldt. I started out as a part-time job developer, at Redwoods United, and lost touch with Grace when I moved on. I regret that. Grace was very dedicated and helped many many people during her career. 

Ralph started a literary agency and I was one of his first clients. I ran into him at Costco a few months ago. Can’t believe he’s gone.

Treasure your friends. They won’t be here forever.
