    an e-mail from Philippe Baise:
    Hello


    This is not Michel here but his son.

    My father died yesterday afternoon from brain cancer.
    After several hours it will be 9 years ...

    Googling is not the best way in this case...

    I found it here: http://apolyton.net/forums/search.ph...pp=25&page=106

    Some threads of that period were lost but apparently not "A is for Alphabet" and the 1st La Fayette's post.

    How about this?

    Your post made me Google for him a bit, which led me to a post where he mentions his "Three Arrow Strategy" I'd never heard of. It took the Internet Archive to find a copy of the original thread where he describes it. It seems to be one of his earliest posts on Apolyton too...

    La Fayette, can you talk with us some way?

    A toast in memoriam.

    I want to add a thanks to Phillippe for putting the picture in his profile. I suppose that was back in March, or that's when I noticed it anyway.

    A thought goes to La Fayette and his family...

    I remember how surprised I was when he addressed me in norwegian... My (swedish) mother did the reverse; she married a french man and moved to France...

    Here's to La Fayette!

    I miss him too, ST. He was a very special man, an extraordinary Civer, and a wonderful friend. There is a big empty hole that Michel left that is made all the more poignant by the decrease in particpation and activity in Civ2-land. Someday we will all be reunited and I feel sure he will treat us newcomers to some new scenarios. Now that's something to cheer one up!!

    A moment ago I was thinking of La Fayette with a light smile, but I went through the thread and at this point of time my mood is turned down a bit
    But I don't want to impose you my emotions, you have ones of yours own...

    Yes, after several hours it will be one year from La Fayette's end/start.

    Rest in Peace, my friend.

    Lord grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, courage to change the things I can, and wisdom to know the difference.
    Xin - I believe that you have said it all ...

    My hope that Michel and Ivor are having one hell of a great PBEM in a better place than this...

    That is fun. The wit and the humanity never fail to shine through! God bless old friend, wherever you are.

    My fault. I didn't realize last post here and at Civfanatics are different.

    I missed anniversary of La Fayette's last post. I didn't want to miss it and only Duke of Civfanatics reminded it...

    I must admit I don't miss La Fayette himself, the reason is probably similar like why I don't miss I can't live on Saturn - I don't miss things that can't be ...
    Maybe another reason is I meet LF again and again when going through old threads.

    I echo the same thoughts as those before me. I was a regular reader for a long time and a somewhat regular poster for a short one. I recall reading many posts by La Fayette and recall the tremendous effort he put into understanding the game. I was shocked to see this post and taken a bit off guard. I wish the best to all his family and hope things are going as well as can be.
