Jeremiah Healy: R.I.P.
I met Jeremiah Healy thirteen or fourteen years ago when he appeared for me at the Lee County Reading Festival. At the time, he and Nancy Pickard agreed to appear because they were good friends. The correspondence between the two, when they copied me, was so funny. Nancy later had to back out because of her mother's health. But, I'll remember Jeremiah in the convertible he drove down to Florida.
Rest in Peace. It's so sad to see what depression does to people, and the tragedy of suicide. I'm so, so sorry.
