Remembering Rhys

We invited Rhys to our wedding in the fall of 2005. He got the time wrong and arrived at the afternoon reception four hours late, when only our fellow graduate students were left. It didn’t matter—Rhys kicked off his flip-flops, settled himself into a lawn chair, and happily held court until well after sunset.
