Earlier we learned that Brett Butler passed away.  Below is the information 
I have received:
On March 23, a message  posted the news of the death of Brett Butler, a 
pioneer in the information industry.  The family received many messages 
from colleagues and friends and requested that their thanks be communicated 
to all.  They have selected a local foundation for memorial donations made 
in memory of Brett.  The foundation was created recently in honor of a 
90-year-old violinist of local renown to generate funds for enhancement of 
elementary and middle school music programs and for the purchase or rental 
of musical instruments for children.  Send contributions in memory of Brett 
Butler to:
