Not sure what to say?

Dear Mrs Hauptman,

I am very-very sorry. He was my favorite teacher and the one that challenged me the most. He helped me very much when I was working on my dissertation. I wanted to come to Buffalo to see him before he left but did not make it on time. He will always be dear to me and I will always think of him and remember him, not only because of his work that was exceptional, but for him being a very gentle, sensitive and exceptional human being.

God is for us a refuge and strength, A help that is readily to be found during distresses...Psalm 46:1

We have lost a great friend and the world has lost a great man.

Dear Mrs. Hauptman,

I am so sorry to hear of the loss of Dr. Hauptman. I was fortunate to meet him and hear him speak at several x-ray crystallography conferences in the early 1980's.

His curiosity and perseverance were truly inspirational, and he will be much missed.

With sincerest sympathy,

Dear Mrs. Hauptman,

I am truly sorry to learn about the loss of Dr. Hauptman. May he rest in peace.

I had the privilege of first meeting Dr. Hauptman at an x-ray crystallographic conference in 1978.

May God comfort and strengthen you and your family during this difficult time. You are in my thoughts and prayers.

May Dr. Hauptman rest in peace. Throughout his life Dr. Hauptman worked to make this world a better place. He succeeded in spectacular fashion. The new building housing the Hauptman-Woodward Institute will remind us of this beloved mathematician who received a Nobel Prize in chemistry.

The memories of Dr. Hauptman's achievements will comfort his family, colleagues and friends.

Thank you Dr. Hauptman. Your genius and work contributed much to my health and to many millions others now and yet to come.


May the peace of God that excels all thought give you comfort and strengthen you at this time of sadness.
