George Simcox sensei (6th dan, Virginia Ki Society) passed away on Friday, 10. November, 2000. He was one of the treasures of the Aikido-L mailing list. I've learned a lot from knowing him over the past several years, and I'll miss him greatly. My condolensces to his family, friends, students, and loved ones.

Thank you, George sensei.
