I don’t have a lot to say. He was a funny guy, courageous, and I’ll miss him. I’d see him mainly at YULblog events, where bloggers based in Montreal would get together. Groups would split off at these meetings, and I would, often as not, be hanging out with him. He was easy to talk with. He didn’t seem to make his illness the center of his life. It affected him, of course, and he participated in projects about it, which might help other victims of cancer. Another blogger has explained all that better than I can. [link]
At any rate, here’s to you, Alston.
