No more totally surprising phone-calls, no more excitable explanations of something mathematically wonderful he'd just discovered. Stuff I thought I'd never begin to understand, but the way he explained it, making me feel so included in the wonder, I would (sometimes) just about get an inkling of what he was on about...
