    I just heard this terrible news. Elliot was one of a kind; just talking to him would make me laugh. His world view was twisted and hilarious. No matter how bad a day I might be having, just talking to Elliot would raise my spirits. He and I had crappy grades at Carleton and we found ourselves looking for employment and interviewing with the same companies through the placement office. We would talk after each round of interviews and wonder which company would be "lucky" enough to land one of us. Through an uncertain period of Carleton, Elliot was my source of humor and sanity. I will miss you brother. Much love to your family.
