“To my excellent friend Gary:
Kerouac wrote about timeless
friendships, but he couldn’t come
up with someone like you.
In the past year (and longer)
we’ve done so much together:
had so many good times. Throughout
it all, you’ve been an excellent friend.
You are a wonderful person.
Have the merriest Christmas and a very
happy New Year, whatever it may bring.
Your Friend, Iain Cooper.
