Sometime after last year’s conference, James told me he had gotten ill and lost a lot of weight but it sounded like he was getting better. I was shocked to learn today that he had passed.
He was always in good spirits and always took the time to explain things to people to make sure they understood it. He was a courageous fighter who always published his work despite the fact that much of it flies directly in the face of “accepted” science, which is of course the whole point.
He absolutely left a powerful and valuable legacy behind in his presentations and writings and he will always be remembered fondly for his humor, his integrity and his passion for truth.
