What a pleasure it was to know Mr. Haeckl as a second father during my college and later years. I am going to miss his keen wit, insightful discussions, and joy in life. I remember when he sang with his favorite dog (cannot remember her name). I think she (the dog) could carry a better tune. Mr. Haeckl knew how to carry the tune of life and I guess that is what matters.
Please know that I send Anne, Tom, and Jane much love and that you are all in my heart.
