Robin, it is hard to detect suicidal predisposition (if this is indeed
as to what has happened) over such a tenous link as email. Looking
back, I still fail to notice any signs of impending doom in Sasha's
email exchanges, with the possible exception of phases of prolific
idea generation, which in the retrospective might be indicative of a
manic phase of a bipolar personality.

The only lesson I can derive from this, is that those of us who live
in physical proximity should meet more often, and use this meetings
for more than just intellectual exchanges. Unfortunately, we are all
busy people, which makes this hard to achieve.

Still, worth a try.
