Death is an inevitable, intrinsic part of life. I accept that. But some years just seem particularly bad for those of us who love animation, or just value the people who contribute a lot to the world around them. I've been trying, with little success, to pull my thoughts together to write something cogent on the recent passing of Derek Lamb (who spent decades producing animation for Sesame Street and, more notably, the NFB). On a more personal level, I just learned that former Animation World Network associate editor Wendy Jackson Hall died suddenly on Monday.

A memorial for Derek Lamb is being planned in Montreal. Ruth Hayes reports that a memorial service for Wendy will be held at 3 p.m. this Saturday (November 19th) at the Seabold United Methodist Church, 6894 NE Seabold Church Road, Bainbridge Island, Washington (360-692-7694). Messages to her husband Porter can be sent to porter [at] jacksonhall [dot] com.
