Word from GAMA and the Miniatures Page is that “Uncle” Duke Seifried had triple-bypass surgery last month (much like my father did last year). Duke got through with flying colors and is now recuperating in his home in Janesville, WI.
I sat next to Duke at Gary Gygax’s funeral, and he seemed fine then. As I saw with my father, though, these things can sneak up on you. I’m glad Duke got the diagnosis and treatment he needed, and I hope to see him at many conventions to come.
