There are events that strike with such sudden and unanticipated tragedy that we are left dazed and disoriented. It is with great sadness that we notify you of the untimely death of Geoff Heron, our cherished friend and colleague and, for some, husband and father. Geoff died of an aggressive form of lymphoma one week after the diagnosis was made, and treatment begun. We have lost him, a man of uncommon grace, good humor, kindness, wisdom, and gentle strength. He will be deeply missed by many. A memorial service has been scheduled for 10:30am - 2:00pm this Sunday, August.28th.
