Not sure what to say?

I worked as a technician for Dr. Cahill at UNH 1960-1962 and especially enjoyed our expedition to Wallops Island to launch the sounding rocket payload we prepared at UNH. He was a great mentor. Ave atque vale, Sir.

Kitty, Sorry to hear of your father-in-law's passing. God be with you and comfort Tom and you during this difficult time.

I was also a student of Professor Cahill in 1980 on my way to an engineering degree. I once went to complain about a test score; the points were added incorrectly. Prof. Cahill looked at me and smiled - he said with surprise, "But it is in your favor!" The conversation that followed was one of my favorite moments at the university. I now have three degrees and have taken many classes, had many professors - Professor Cahill was one of the best. Weekly exams, endless homework...

I was a Prof Cahill student back in 1980. He made physics interesting, as it should be. Sorry for your loss.
