RIP: Publiciste Supreme

So farewell, then, Judy Corman, doyenne of PRs.

Complicating cancer took her at the whippernapper age of 65.

The Times obit says it best: this was no mere hackette.

What a career: Harry Potter, Epic Records, Miles Davis, John Denver, Willie Nelson ... the list goes on.

I wonder how many times Henry Holland's fine poem was read in memoriam, Death is Nothing at All, or how many know the interesting background?

I came across an even more florid version, illustrated by Frank Dicksee's "Yseult" and complemented by sonorous piano accompaniment.

And while we're on the subject of Holland and the Grim Reaper,
how many know his Death?

I can't quite make out if this *commemorates* Waleed J. Iskandar, gathered in his handsome youth and whose pic seems forms the watermark background, or if it's *by* him.

I go for the former, the whimsically Javascripted name symbolising young Waleed's nimbly capering spirit, still sprightly among us.
