Mr. Adams,

Your work had a huge influence on my intellectual development and continues to inspire me to this day. I'll deal with this as Slartibartfast would - "hang the sense of it and keep yourself occupied." Those words of wisdom that he spoke to Arthur Dent when the latter felt that the underlying truth of things was scrutable. Slartibartfast knew the fundamental unknowability of absolute truth, and while I am saddened by your passing, I have no desire to look for rhyme or reason in it. It is just one of those things that happen. It just as easily could have been me.

Thank you, thank you, thank you.
