My condolences to the family and friends of author Jay Lake, 1964-2014. Jay and I were colleagues and relative neighbors (Portland and Olympia); we chatted a few times at conventions, but we weren’t close. A couple of years back when my dog Athena was battling cancer, Jay dropped onto my FB page and expressed his sympathy and support for her recovery. A small thing, to tap out a note for somebody’s sick dog. But the small things are the only things, they make up everything. I remember it. So, goodbye and hello, as always, Jay.
