Jamil Figi 1 of 1
An Old Friend April 20, 07
I met Jerry (later Jamil) when I was 20 years old. I worked with him at an insurance company in Chicago. His poems and writing influenced how I looked at things for the rest of my life ... always with my mind in kaleidescope mode. I started liking jazz because of him. We once had a love affair but became friends and even when I moved away, we wrote to each other and I eagerly awaited his next poem/letter. I was able to visit him once in the 80's but we did stay in touch. His passing saddened me and the world lost an artist. I just found this page so wanted to post my tribute to a beautiful man.
