Dear Virginia and family--Dell was the most brilliant scholar and thinker I have ever known, in any field--and surely one of the kindest and most generous. I treasure our sessions here in Central Oregon and elsewhere, and I know that you are finding comfort in the knowledge that the legacy of the man and his work is broad, deep, and ongoing. All my best, Jerry Ramsey, Madras, Oregon

Desejo a Paz de Deus sobre a família dele.

I will be forever grateful that Dell was my teacher and a member of my doctoral committee at UPenn; he was responsible for making Penn open its doors to future minority linguists in the first place. I treasure his memory, especially his committment to issues of language and justice in education. Que Dios bendiga a su familia-- Los acompan~o en el sentimiento.

Dear Ginny,I am so sorry to learn of Dell's death. I have such fond memories of our Indiana days, and now there's only Polly, Denny, you and I. Pat died in 2007 and I've been a widow ever since. Stay well, Dottie Kaschube

I am shaken by Dell Hymes' passing. His work in sociolinguistics and ethnography shaped my dissertation on a Tzotzil community in Chiapas, Mexico. I am so grateful that John Singleton, my dissertation advisor, introduced me to Dell at Penn during one of the ethnography in education conferences.
