Dear Joe,  What sad news about Bob Fried. I have known him since about 1974
when he built his first Braeside Observatory on Flagstaff mountain high above
Boulder, Colorado.  For a while we worked together at the University of
Colorado but he was far too sharp and energetic for the stagnate minds of the
astronomy department there, so he left after a few months to go off on his
own again.  We have kept in touch via E-mail and telephone since he left

I shall miss him very much.  What a loss.
