Alan Hart, one of most respected Middle East Foreign Policy Experts in the world has passed. Alan has written extensively for the Veterans Today Network for over a decade. His articles have contributed to the amazing discourse and have given readers special insights into the politics of the region. He is un-replaceable and will be sorely missed. He was one of the good guys.
Here’s what his daughter Susie wrote on this Alan Hart blog yesterday
Alan Hart, our beloved father, passed away yesterday at the age of 75.
Although his passing was sudden, he had been unwell for the last few years. We thought we had lost him a year ago, but he got better and was able to continue working for peace and unity in the world.
He went into hospital yesterday morning and, whilst he remained unresponsive, his heart remained strong for as long as it could. But in the early afternoon, a calmness came over him, vital signs began failing and a body shut down shortly followed.
We were there to hold him, say our goodbyes and support each other.
The human body – his home no more.
His energy, essence and spirit – well & free.
We sincerely thank all of you for the trust, friendship and support you all showed and shared over the years. We know that he appreciated it very much and so do we.
p.s. We are compiling an album in memory of Alan that will be present at the funeral and then kept by Nicki (his wife, our mum) in the family home. If you would like to contribute a reading, a poem, a photo or a memory, please provide it as a single sheet A4 (doc/pdf) and send it to [email protected] We welcome your contribution.
