Alpha's father died this afternoon. Very sudden and totally unexpected.
A huge loss for his family, who loved him dearly, and for all those who had the good fortune to have known him. He was a remarkable man in so many ways... a formidable intellect, a raconteur who could liven up the dullest of gatherings, a kind heart, a husband of over 40 years, father to five children and grandfather to six... he was a powerful presence who will never be forgotten.
Rest in peace, Paul. You will be greatly missed.
