I am very sorry to relay that philosophy major Micah Morris, who graduated this past spring, was killed in a motorcycle accident last weekend. Micah had taken a break from his degree to become certified as a mortician, and then returned to his philosophy classes armed with a kind of specialized knowledge and humane temperament that made him a wonderful partner in conversations. His funeral will be in Provo on Friday morning; there will follow a graveside service Friday afternoon in Samaria, Idaho. Please send me a note if you would like details.
