Mr. Bleecker,

First of all, let me extend my thoughts and prayers to you as his friend. I know how close you were to him and it is difficult to watch a good friend slip away. I want to thank you for keeping me informed of his health throughout this process as well.

We in the CKF will deeply miss Mr. Hyams as he was a great soldier within the martial arts and the writing world. Many of us knew him personally and we were all saddened to hear of this loss. Our condolences go out to Lisa. May his memories bring you peace.
