You were always interested in how best to serve the needs of our students and faculty. You were always warm, generous, and sincere in your support of your colleagues. You always brought your intellect, savviness, and ambition to every task. And you had a great sense of humor too.

Thank you for your contributions and dedication to our faculty, students, and staff. Thank you for the opportunity to work with you, and learn from you. What a privilege to work with someone who is a great supervisor, colleague, and friend.
