Very sad news indeed. I'll miss his active and cheerful contribution

I discovered Jerry, who was a Smalltalk fan, and we used to have very long discussions about what it all meant. He'd thought a lot about some of the critical issues and kept me on the straight and narrow when I drifted. Jerry retired from IBM a few years back, did consulting work and stayed active in the Smalltalk community.
