November 17, 2009
My heart is deeply grieving for a man in our community who died Nov. 6, 2009, Jesse Boyce. He was my friend and a scientist whose work supported our planet. He didn’t always tell people what they wanted to hear, but as a man of few words, he did say what was important. I’ve never wanted to be at a memorial service more, and Thursday, Nov. 19, will not be possible.
It only adds to my grievous disappointment that Jesse’s life was over so soon. He was the “gold standard” for both men and women in my life, especially men. There is no replacing him. “In gentleness is true strength.”
Jesse, you are remembered. I thank you and your beautiful family.
