	Other than Butler, they'd all outlived the majority of their peers 
outside the field, and were fortunate to have had long, productive lives 
beyond what was expected in the times and places they were born. Rather 
than let their end depress us, let us consider that each one's greater 
story is now complete, and be cheered that it rose above the common lot 
as we each fancy our efforts might.
