To Weil, the meeting with Alpert had a very different feel than the get-together with leary.
They were a bit nervous when they sat down, but leary soon put them at ease with his soft-spoken charm.

Ito, another leary godchild, told of flying in when he heard his dear friend was about to die.
"We de- ER her pretty early on, and she was game for it," says leary.
leary reported everything in readiness, and the signal to go forward was given by a hand-clasp repeated along the line.
