I also worked with Swami for several years and when I heard he was 
seriously ill my heart sank. I considered him a friend. Besides  LiveCode, 
we talked of many things. He was kind and generous, and he loved LC, his 
life and his mission. HIs smile was contagious and sometimes when he 
laughed he seemed to almost visibly shine. We first connected when he said 
he sang to his cow and that she cried when he did it. He said he used to 
spend hours lying with his head on her neck, singing to her. He sent me a 
link so I could hear him singing and he had a lovely gentle voice. You have 
to love someone who sings to cows.

I miss you Swami. I should sing to cows.
