"He was a fine teacher."

I just learned this morning of this man's amazing courage on a short PBS documentary I stumbled across. I wish I had seen it while he was still with us. It takes a special brand of courage to stand alone for what is right rather than for what is easy. Well done, sir!

I have the privilege of knowing Gordon all my life. We spent much time discussing his stand when he stayed with our family in Seattle during the 1980's while his case was being prepared. It was a lesson in history that will be with our family forever. He will be missed by all of us but his spirit will be with us always.
To Susan, Jay, Mitzi and Maura, our thoughts and hearlfelt sympathy is with you.

I have many memories of Gordon from the time when both our families came to Edmonton and lived in the new faculty housing at U of A, through meeting and travelling with Gordon and Esther in Europe while Gordon and my father were on sabbatical. As well the Hirabayashis were frequent attendees at the many bridge games at our house while I was in high school. My condolences to Sharon, Marion, and Jay and their families.

I remember with fondness the evenings of bridge playing at the University of Alberta Faculty Club and at the Hirabayashi home. Both Gordon and Susan were great bridge players and relaxing hosts. Little did I know what a horrendous past Gordon had overcome...that is, until I hiked in the Tucson, AZ area and saw for the first time and hiked in the park named after him. I was so proud to have known him...
He was a great teacher and a fine role model. May there be many more like him...we need them.
Susan, take care of yourself....

Affectionately,
M. Ruth Elliott
Edmonton, Alberta
