Dr. Chanock, Mrs. Chanock, Mrs. Osgood, and Foster are most warmly remembered by the Cullinane family from their Longwood days. Eternal rest grant unto them, O Lord, and may perpetual light shine upon them.

It was my honor to have interacted with Dr. Chanock on various research topics involving infectious diseases over the years through the mid 1990s. I will miss him.
