Medical libraryland is mourning the loss of Jay Daly, who passed away last week. Can there be a medical librarian who hasn't heard his name? And can there be anyone who managed to spend some time with him who wasn't better off for the experience? I didn't know him at all well -- only chatted on a couple of occasions -- but just that much improved my life. And, he was a member of the Thicket Society.
I can scarcely imagine what the loss must be like for those who were close to him.
Marc Laroque does a fine job with the obit in today's Globe. Read it, and pledge to Jay's memory that you're going to be a better, kinder person from now on.
