Without taking precious reader time, I wanted to say a fond farewell to my friend Don Kralis. As most of you probably know, Don and his wife Lois were killed in late June outside of Terrace, BC. There was a memorial service for him on July 2nd but I was unable to attend. I thought that a few kind words in a public forum might speed him happily on his way to the Great Beyond.

He was a good friend and a great teacher. He'd forgotten more than I'll ever know about Geology and was a fountain of information on the subject. He was a sounding board for my crazier plans and I for his. His loss is a crater (he'd laugh at the Geology reference) in my life and I am sure the lives of many others. I hope all of you will join me in wishing his family all the best. Good journey, Don and Lois.
