Andy Narain has been my dear friend since I first came to the San Francisco Bay area some 17.5 years ago. Elena and I were blessed to have a wonderful dinner with him last night at the Best Western Hotel in Grosvenor square. He looks good and is doing well in life. His son just graduated from law school and passed the rigorous California bar exam that only 46% of the test takers pass. Andy has seen me in really hard times and really good times. He is always a very special friend! It was a wonderful evening.
