Ben Banville (aka Zona or Xona) died...... RIP

Message from Steve Random:

Dear Ruud,

    With a leadened heart I must relay the passing of Ben Banville (aka Zona and later Xona), don't know if you corresponded with him in the Mail Art heydays of the 80's, but he was one of the best at art and just happened to be my best friend. I will put something on my page, but thought you might want to know and pass along.

Harley died

For those who know him, just got the sad news that Harley, a long-time mail-artists specialised in artistamps and rubberstamps, died.

The original message I got from Jack Latteman:

This message received from Tristan Francis

Robbie. I am sad to tell you that Harley shuffled off this mortal coil this afternoon. This is a different planet now.
My best to Lady Dragonfly
Hugs, love and strength...
