Sometimes, believe it or not, Manfred and I would read an Old Testament passage, in Hebrew and in English, and Manfred's reactions to it were, of course, utterly novel, both reverent and irreverent. He asked the most wonderful questions.

I feel lucky to have known Manfred and to have been able to speak a little with his children and with their mother. In fact, during Manfred's recuperation from an operation, it was to be in touch with them that I bought my first little cellphone, the one I still have!

And Manfred's number in Sonoma is still on my quick-dial.

Rest in peace.
