I am saddened to hear of Robert's death. I often wondered what ever  
happened with him. He, Carlos and I enjoyed many long and wrenching  
conversations in appropriating being black in American and in the Order. I  
have fond memories of teaching the Urban Academy with him. He was a true  
treasure, and I pray that his soul is at peace.
