Update on Audiogon Member Almarg

I have some very sad news and information to share.

Al ( @almarg ), through his wife Margaret, asked me to post the following...

{"The attached letter to you was dictated at his bedside to me earlier today. I hope I got his words down precisely as he desired."}

"Unfortunately Al has an extremely aggressive form of Mantle Cell Lymphoma coupled with a mutation of gene TP53 (known as tumor suppressor gene). He has received outstanding advanced treatment with the latest and greatest chemo drugs at Smilow Cancer Hospital at Yale in New Haven. Unfortunately it appears that he only has a few weeks to live.

Please feel free to post a substantive update [on Audiogon]. He has not been able to do that because of his condition. Please indicate that he has enjoyed solving problems, researching others,’ and learning a good deal himself while developing his answers.

He and I wish everyone all the best of health and success in audio endeavors, in that order.

Al [and Margaret]

I will post my very personal response tomorrow.
I send the best to all and wish strength.  Though I did not have access to Al and his kind generosity and wisdom... It is nice to read how someone has made a difference...affecting those around him in positive ways; leaving a space to be remembered...
Al has always been one of the most knowledgeable, generous and gentlemanly persons on this forum - often going out of his way to do his own independent research on behalf of the person seeking advice. In this forum, he was the best of the best.
May God bless you all.
