Jeff Had Some Good Last Days


Jeff Medkeff’s friend, co-blogging under the pen-name Iatros Polygenos (“mongrel doctor” if my Greek serves me), offers a detailed account of our friend’s last days. Turns out that Jeff died during a trip to England where he was having a blast, visiting Darwin’s home, the Royal Observatory in Greenwich and other great sites! I’m very grateful to learn that Jeff died swiftly in the middle of having fun, not after weeks of wasting away in bed.

    Just a note: you’ve translated “Mongrel Doctor” correctly – Jeff’s wife–the person who wrote his last post–is a veterinarian. We had a wake for him today. I miss him like crazy; he was a wonderful human being.
