Early this morning, November 15, 2012, my father ended his six-year battle with cancer. He was with his wife and children who made sure that his final moments were filled with laughter and love as he had lived. He will be deeply, deeply missed by his family and the many friends whose lives he touched. And as I wrote, I will miss him more than I can possibly say. And thank you to everyone who has reached out across so many media – your words mean the world to my family and me.

There’s much more to write in time about how we all in the edu-world have an obligation to the folks in my father’s generation who have fought the good fight… and how it is now our job to pick up the mantle, but that is a post for another day.
