Jacques Clément OWN R.I.P.
30 June 2012
Dear Wednesday Nighters,
It is with heavy hearts that we convey the news from Guy Stanley and Yvette that Jacques Clément has joined Carl, Comrade Harry, Eric McConachie, Knut Hammarskjold, Germaine Gibara, Jamie Tiller, Jean Bourbonnais, Lady Hamilton and Madame la présidente (aka Marie Hélène Sarazin) at the Wednesday Night In The Sky. In such enjoyable company they will surely have solved all of the world’s economic and social problems long before the earthlings do so. And maybe, just maybe, Jamie can teach Jacques how to use email so that he can report on the outcomes.
Although Jacques has been ill and absent from Wednesday Nights for nearly five years, we will all remember his contributions in the guise of meticulously researched and delivered Reports on the Economy. Jacques delighted in preparing and delivering those reports to his friends, albeit somewhat disgruntled when required to limit himself to seven minutes. And even more so when the content of the basket of food, the basis of inflation estimates, was questioned.
He was so proud of his OWN and he did the fellowship honor.
We loved him dearly. He and Diana had known each other since they were teenagers in Murray Bay where he often came to visit his good friend Charlie Donahue to play golf. He was a dear, engaging and generous friend.
We have no details at this time, but will forward them as soon as they are available.
Diana and David
1936 – 2012
