Dear MacGregor's,

The World has lost a talented and fascinating man in Alistair Ferrie. Artist, writer, speaker, humorist, Alistair was the Scottish Will Rogers. He was so talented and clever, I wanted to know him better. Even though I felt invited, the distance was too far and his time too short to spend with each of us. I feel a great loss even though we were only acquaintances.

My sympathy and prayers go you to is family.

Richard Walker, Lutz, Florida
