Bon Voyage Maurice.

Au revoir, notre ami, et bon voyage.

also from this site:     (Yes, I have been to south dakota.)

That's very sad news, except that he passed away in Paris and not in Flint. We should all be grateful for that on his behalf.

 

Still. What an enormous loss, not only to us, but to the whole damned world. Godspeed, my friend.

And just yesterday, I happened to look up this very Hemingway quote:

 

If you are lucky enough to have lived in Paris as a young man, then wherever you go for the rest of your life it stays with you, for Paris is a moveable feast.

Young man. Older man. It doesn't really matter.

 

Wherever Maurice is, rest assured, Paris is still with him.

We had already starting missing him. I'm so sorry to hear this news, although it is not unexpected, but I'm also glad, as others have said, that he died in Paris, as he no doubt wanted to.

"It is in moments of illness that we are compelled to recognize that we live not alone but chained to a creature of a different kingdom, whole worlds apart, who has no knowledge of us and by whom it is impossible to make ourselves understood: our body."
