I believe we are all musicians. As a friend of mine wrote in a poem many, many years ago: "Listen, as we hum the tune of life."

My friend and fellow poet -- whom I played football with in high school -- put a gun to his head and killed himself about two years ago.

Mr. Tanabe hummed a long and hopefully happy tune of life.
