I am going to take a couple days off, here and there, this week, and post when I can on Cryptomundo. I am dealing with the death of my sons’ maternal grandfather (my ex-wife’s father), whom I have known personally, non-stop (despite the divorce), for almost 30 years now.
John Coit Cone, 88, who was a former NH state legislator and had worked with Robert F. Kennedy investigating the Bernard Goldfine-Sherman Adams "Vicuña Coat Affair," died yesterday on RFK’s birthday, after a long battle with cancer.
John Coit Cone always had very Kennedyesque looks, shown here in about 1950.
The Cone family traces their heritage back to Daniel Cone (born 1626) of Edinburgh, Scotland, of the Clan Mackhoe. My thoughts are with the immediate family, my sons, and all their friends, of course, and making myself available to support them.
My condolences also go out to Bill Gibbons, the seeker of Mokele-mbembe, for the recent loss (around November 16th) of his mother, 70, in Scotland. She died suddenly and was found by Bill’s brother on the kitchen floor. How awful.
The Cone funeral is on Sunday, in New Hampshire, due to Thanksgiving.
