When Dr. Norman passed away, I was in China, where I could not get access to the internet. I was deeply saddened to learn it. Dr. Norman was a great scholar and wonderful teacher, as well as a kind mentor. I remembered a story just after I arrived in Seattle. Dr. Norman took Janet and I went to visit an aquarium. Right after we got off the bus, we started to run. According to Chinese culture, we should fight for buying the tickets regardless we had the money or not. Of course Dr. Norman bought the tickets for us. He laughed and said: “I am very happy to bring you to the aquarium, but just don't let me run that much!” Dr. Norman was just like a great friend although he was really my respectful teacher. While I was at UW, he was always very kind and friendly. Dr. Norman was a great scholar. I always think it would be great if I know a small part of what he knew. After I started to teach at Princeton University, Dr. Norman kept close contact with me to help my dissertation. He gave me strong influences in many ways. I will miss Dr. Norman a lot. My deepest condolences to Chen Laoshi and the family.
