Last Sunday, a week ago, I received an email sent out by Margaret Berry, Thomas Berry’s sister and aide, saying that Thomas’ health was rapidly declining. It was a moment of deep sadness and reflection. At 94 years-old, and having suffered a stroke a few years ago, his vigor was slowly fading. The last time I had lunch with him he said he was "feeling constrained." But then he proceeded to drop so much knowledge that I left with 15 pages of handwritten notes. As Herman Greene said, who visited Thomas once a month–including last week–he never was senile.
