You have always been a gentleman by all standards. As my teacher in medschool, I was not so close to you but you were always friendly when we crossed paths at the College premises.
My consolation is the numbers of heartwarming encounters that colleagues I know very well have had with with. And this is the reason I think that though a painful and a surprised departure, the memory of you will be a pleasant one. Though we feel the loss, we know that it is rest time for you.
Rest in the bosom of the Lord.
Prof Plange-Rhule Rule,
Rest in Perfect Peace.
The Lord keep your gentle soul!
