with sadness

Thimphu, Bhutan
 It is with great sadness and a sense of personal loss that I heard the news of 

Gene's passing away.

A giant and pioneer in our field has left us. People of my generation feel orphans.
 He was not only a mentor but also a generous host for all of us, penniless aspiring 

researchers.
 His knowledge and willingness to share was tremendous
 I knew him since 1976 and his help, encouragement and vision were decisive for 

my professional life.
 Our field which has just lost a 'founding father'.
