O Captain, My Captain

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,
learn more,
do more and
become more,
you are a leader.

~John Quincy Adams
