I don't know if anyone uses this anymore, but in case anyone does read this, I have some terrible news.
Jack Bradley, navarchus, has passed away after a long illness this last year.
I met him here on livejournal 20 years ago and we have since reconnected on Facebook in recent years. We often spoke on the phone and I'd like to think we have become close, especially over this last year.
Sorry to be the bearer of bad news. I'm terribly heartbroken.
