My good friend Carl sitting in the sun on the benches of the University of Alberta Student Union building. Carl was one of my best friends in Edmonton and it saddens me that I have so few pictures of him. He was a "goofy poser." When you pointed a camera in his face he immediately started clowning even more than usual. Carl died in near poverty a few years ago from prostate cancer in a Calgary hospice. Upon learning of his illness I called him a few weeks before his death. He was taking pain drugs and it took him a few moments to recognize my voice. I hoped to chat with him again but death intervened and I was left with the feeling that I didn't say goodbye and thanks for being such a superb friend.
