Dear "Cheech"
I was very sorry to hear about the passing of Euke. I have so many fond memories of him, going back to my teen-age years.
André joins me in expressing to you, and yours, our heartfelt condolences. André did not know Euke as well as I did, but on the occasions that he did meet him, he found him to be a very interesting and likeable person.
