“What a peculiar but real loss for the rest of us. I found Lance to be such
an enigma: self-possessed and seemingly contented without being smug,
intellectually demanding without being elitist, with just the slightest aura
of tragedy about him that in no way undercut his casual ebullience. All
this, and I only spent maybe a grand total of six or seven days with him.
But he made every day count, didn’t he? I’m really sorry he’s gone, sorrier
still that I spent so little time in his company.”
