I just learned this saddened news today when I browsed the Gazette web. Ching-Lee, my wife, and I are extremely sorry to know Gordon passed away last month. Please accept our heartiest condolence to you and your family members. Prof. Gordon MacLachlan was my most-respected teacher, mentor and the one who had inspired and influenced me so much. His supervison and guidance on my PhD study at McGill in the mid 1970s had brought most profound changes to my whole life. He has been my role model over my past 30 years of academic life.
Dear Sally, can you send me your email address so that I can write to you (email@example.com). I will be visiting Vancouver on 8 August, 2013 and I wish I can pay a visit to your place.
Vice-President and Professor of Biology,
The Hong Kong University of Science and Technology.
(Prof. MacLachlan's former PhD student)
