Dear Meredith, Owen, Doug, and Maggie,
I learned today, through the far-reaching Barrows network, of your terrible loss. Joe and I are thinking of you, and I am remembering Henry's early life, from the summer that I spent in Paris with Doug and numerous other roommates, as he raced through his dissertation research so he could return home to wait for Henry, through Henry's baby shower and on through his early months of life in Oakland. I have wonderful photos of many of these occasions, now long past, and I am so very sorry that I never met the talented, caring, and beautiful young man Henry became. The world is a poorer place without him in it, and I send you my deepest sympathy.
