Like Sir Patrick, he was definitely one of the people I would have liked to have met but didn't. I really felt that I could not add anything to what people who knew him personally had. I even wondered if it would have been rather pretentious if I did.

One has to think that, rather than lamenting his death, we should celebrate the additional 50+ years that he had beyond what the doctors had said. A remarkable life indeed!
How can I be one with the universe when we don't know what 96% of it is.

Fortunately Patrick was a good friend of mine, in fact my son and I published his first ever book he wrote, just before he died, we had 500 printed they are not in the shops, written when he was 22ish
