Today the news were even in our local paper. Creator of C64, been in Auswitch, something to do with Amigas? No mention about it offcourse but typewriters.

Rest Peacefully. I hope we continue the work like eg. Trevor does. Jay Miner was also the Man. Condolenses to the family. Continuing work for many years for all and we'll see there (in Amigaheaven) after a long and fruitful life.
