Dear friends,

I'm writing to report that our co-moderator for this email list, the 
longstanding Durrell scholar and dear friend to many of us, Bill 
Godshalk, passed away on Sunday.

For everyone who knew Bill, his laughter was infectious.  For everyone 
who read him, his scholarship was extraordinary.  For me, rather than 
dwell on the sadness, I'm trying to remember Bill when I first met him 
in person on Corfu in 2000: leaping off the side of the boat into the 
bay under the Shrine of Saint Arsenius...

Kindest thoughts to all of you.
