Alan Caruba was my friend and mentor, he was my sounding board, he was the reason I kept on blogging when I felt that there was nothing left to say and that folks like us were only *preaching to the choir*, but most of all, Alan Caruba was my FRIEND and I loved that gentleman as if he were my father.
