Trager never looked the part of a hopeless romantic,
but in the final days of his life, he revealed an unknown side of his psyche. The hidden quasi-Jungian persona surfaced during the Agatha Christie-like pursuit of his long-reputed soul-mate, a woman whom he only spent a few precious hours with. Sadly, the protracted search ended late Saturday night in complete and utter failure. Yet even in certain defeat, Trager secretly clung to the belief that life is not merely a series of meaningless accidents or coincidences. Uh-uh. But rather, it's a tapestry of events that culminate in an exquisite, sublime plan.
