I met Graham Chapman in 1978 in London, Ontario.
He was at the University of Western Ontario in a one-person lecture series. There was a huge snowstorm that night which meant that only about 20 die-hard fans were in the crowd.
He treated every star-struck questioner with tremendous respect and generosity. I was impressed, to say the least.
I have always admired grace during difficult times. John Cleese demonstrates an appropriate response to loss: empathy, fraternity and action.
