Always smiling...

This is the perfect photo of my friend Edgar Torres, taken a little over two years ago in Philly, because it shows him half-laughing, half-smiling, as he almost always seemed to be.

I'm sorry to say that Edgar lost his battle with cancer yesterday after fighting it off for the last few years, and I didn't find it easy to sleep after getting the e-mail from his wife Maria late last night. (They celebrated their fifteenth anniversary earlier this month.) I wish you'd known him if you didn't; I wish I'd gotten to see him more recently than last year.
