Dear Friends and colleagues,

John Wilder Tukey died last night of an accumulation of physical problems.

We shared a mince pie (his favorite) on Monday night in his hospital room, 
and he was in good spirits, but in the end his body failed him. 

He left us with his mind intact; despite the physical problems that plagued
in the end he was still John Tukey.

If you have any specific question please write and I will try to answer
As other plans are made I will keep you informed.
