The Daily Goodbye

Patricia Sullivan

Good morning.

Arts patron Jack L. Wolgin wanted people to see Philadelphia as a center for the arts. So he gave the city a Claes Oldenburg sculpture instead of another Civil War statue of a soldier on horseback. It couldn't have been more different -- it was a clothespin. Wolgin supported the art until his death Tuesday.

Tim Michael
, a ski instructor in Ketchum, Idaho, died in an avalanche that he apparently triggered by accident. Witnesses saw him in the center of the slope with the avalanche coming down from above.

One of Milwaukee's best-known Catholic priests, Rev. Gene Jakubek, who died Jan. 19, was known both as a man of God and a man who fell from grace. He then picked himself up and went on with his life, still devoted to serving those in need.
