My doctoral advisor, mentor, and friend was in a fatal bike accident a couple of days ago. I will miss him deeply: his open heart, his great listening and questioning, his faith in me, his generosity and curiosity and warmth. He was a dear man, a gem.
Thank you, Fred. I couldn't have asked for a better guide through academics, psychology (and life). It's not going to be the same without you. I kind of don't want to do it anymore if you're not going to be there, too.
If your actions inspire others to dream more,
do more and
you are a leader.
~John Quincy Adams
