Athelstan slipped peacfully away from us on May 2, 1995, after a very brief
illness. His struggle is over, but ours is just beginning. His spontaneity
and good humor enriched the lives of
everyone he came close to and the love and devotion he gave to his friends
was limitless. His energy and enthusiasim will not be easily replaced in our
land, but his memory will live forever...
"Oh we'll go no more aroving, so late into ,the night.
Though the heart is still as loving, and the moon is still as bright..."
- Lord Byron
