My dear friend Lester Grinspoon peacefully passed away in the presence of his wife Betsy on June 25th, one day after his 92nd birthday.
I was about to call him on that very day when I heard the news.
I’m still in shock. In the last years I had tried to prepare myself for this to happen. My rational mind knew it would happen sometimes. But my childish heart was firmly convinced that Lester was invincible.
I’d like to share here some thoughts and personal memories about Lester.
