Words cannot even begin to describe how saddened I am for your loss, and all of our loss.
I worked with Alan for many years on more committees than I can count. No matter how far I advanced in my career or thought process, it seems like Alan had already been there for decades, waiting patiently with his warm smile for the rest of us to catch up to him.
It is a shame to me that more of the people whose lives have been influenced by his thoughts, his actions and his leadership have never gotten to know him personally. To the extent that I did I am forever blessed.
Thank you Alan for everything that you did. I hope that someday we can all live up to, and catch up to the vision that you had for us.
