Modest, strong, devoted to her family and grandchildren, a good hiking friend. I am far away from Vancouver at the moment. It is hard to imagine that Dagmar will not be there when I return.

As a trainee and subsequent colleague and co-author, I am very sad to hear of Dagmar's death. She was cytogenetic leader and UBC had glory days of genetic leadership not only in Canada but internationally. My thoughts go out to the family and wish you a Happy New Year.

Prof Kalousek was already an Eminence when I began to train in paediatric pathology. She came, an invited lecturer, to Women & Infants' Hospital of Rhode Island, where I was doing a fellowship -- and she paid attention to me, she made me feel that she valued me and my possible contributions to her discipline. As she did at every encounter that we had thereafter.

She was good at cherishing. I am sure that she was well cherished in return. That marks a life properly spent.
