Amrita and I are saddened to hear the news of Dr. Hurley's untimely death. However the sadness is being replaced by many pleasant memories. I have many pleasant memories of Dr. Hurley. I joined UNT-TCOM at approximately the same time and had opportunity to work with him on behalf of TCOM, Graduate School, and UNTHSC. I was member of NTECC for as many years as it existed. Following which we continued our friendship on personal basis. I enjoyed and profited from every minute of our association.
