    Rob, I am in the middle of re-reading my Prophet collection currently, and last night, I read Prophet #4. In the back of the issue, there is a full page remembrance that you printed for The King, who had passed away right before that issue came out. Seeing that made me pause for a good while, thinking about all that Jack gave us. Imagine my shock when I heard your new podcast episode today, talking about The Great One’s funeral. Thank you for sharing your story about his funeral, truly great to hear a story about one of the most creative human beings in modern history. What a remarkable person.
