|Kobutsu Malone with Harley Bear, who preceded him in death.|
I knew things were on a downturn when, last week, I talked to Kobutsu and he seemed not to care much ... care enough to get pissed off about old favorite topics like Eido Shimano or the Catholic Church. Pissed off was his happiest and most lively mode and I often used them to rouse him up from whatever lethargy was afflicting him at the moment. He could be an irascible son-of-a-bitch.
"It wasn't unexpected," said Scates. And that seems to me so sum things up nicely.
Nothing is settled as regards the remains or other post-mortem details.
