I recently learned that retirement writer/researcher Dirk Cotton passed away late last month.

Through his blog, Retirement Cafe, Cotton taught me quite a bit over the years. I never had the chance to meet him in person, but in our email correspondence he was always very kind.

Many of Dirk’s articles have been included in roundups here on this blog, but today I just wanted to (re)share a few of my favorites. I hope you enjoy them.
