When I first met Pierre, I wrote that he was old beyond his years. It was with a bitter irony today, that I connected a spike in traffic and the heartfelt messages of Pierre’s friends with the news of his death.
He was a masterful and generous host, quick with a drink and even faster with a kind word and a flash of his boyish smile. He loved the work he had chosen, and loved the people it bought him into contact with.
He will be sorely missed.
