I have worked at Lane Blood Center in Eugene, OR since 1992. It was there that I was introduced to the joy of reading his editorials with his tongue in cheek, wry sense of humor. He made the most droll seem delightful while never undermining the seriousness of the presentation. I have never met him, yet he had provided me with 22 years of smiles and chortles during some long days in the office. I thank him for his wit and eloquent style of writing. How will his shoes be filled? That will be a daunting task. My heart goes out to his family. What a loss for so many.
