I was rather shocked to hear the news. I thought Clark was relatively young -- relative to the older codgers like myself who also write for Aikiweb and Aikido Journal. I have just returned from a regular visit to the hospital, where my cancer was checked. I am at the stage called 'watchful waiting,' but the doctor thought age was also an important factor in my particular case. It creeps upon you and there is no escape. Anyway, condolences to Clark's family and friends.
Clark often talked about his respect for you and your shared interest in trying to preserve history. I have watched his health deteriorate for years now, so I was not that surprise or shocked. Glad to here you condition appears stable. Yes, life does have accumulative consequence and many of us have a great deal of mileage and wreckage.
