  1. Hi Eric!

    I’ve been a fan and reader for years, so imagine my happiness to learn that Root Simple linked to my humble blog!

    Thanks for spreading the word about Pepe – he was magical indeed.

    • Gah! I hate it when I misspell people’s names. My brain knew it was Erik, but my fingers went their own way. I’m sorry!

    • Hey Hugh–that was a really moving blog post. You are a gifted writer and I deeply respect your commitment to making this world a better place not just in words but in your life.
