Subject: RE: Obit: Archie Green (22 March 2009)
Mentor, inspiration, friend I will miss him more than words can say. Archie was the wind behind these last years of my long research for a biography of Vincent St. John. Archie and his dearest pal, Henry, loved "Vint" as much as I. We three discussed and plotted and planned and in the end I had hoped to have the book completed so Archie could read it. His eyes were failing, but his spirit was brighter than ever. I'm coming in close to the finish line... but Archie took flight.

He will remain my inspiration and take me to the sky, for he would never want any of us to keep our feet on the ground in sorrow, although our hearts ache with his absence. Gentle, laughing, guiding, delightful spirit -- Archie will be with us always. The biography is dedicated to him and to Henry.

Let your wings reach the sun, Archie!
