I feel the same, Lee. He befriended me in an elevator at my first Milton Dinner
(1970!), and remembered me the very next time. He's been a most wonderful friend
and colleague over the years. I'm sure there are so many of us who feel immense
indebtedness and are grateful for the debt!

John is one of those wonderful Miltonists who befriended me when I was a young

very much in my thoughts and prayers. He is one of our giants.
