In Memoriam James Allan Klinkner

My father-in-law passed away last month. Here is his obituary.

I wasn't lucky enough to know Jim before his illness; even so, he was one of the most vital people I've ever known, eager to embrace all life's possibilities. He was a man of considerable talents in many directions, of curiosity and accomplishment. A holder of strong opinions, he respected them in others, even when he disagreed. His love for those who mattered to him was sincere and profound. If I had to bear the same burden, I hope I would have it in me to do so with as much fortitude.

That burden has, at last, been lifted from him. I miss him. I'm going to keep missing him.
