Departed, a mentor.

I received sad news today. A gentleman I considered a mentor and friend, Dr. Glenn Gotz, passed away a couple of weeks ago. Glenn hired me as a summer intern at the RAND corporation several years ago, and has been a cheerful and supportive presence in my life ever since. He was an enthusiastic person, a gregarious person, a people person, a smart man, and one of the best reasons I had to want to finish my Ph.D. I'll miss him sorely, as will most all of us lucky enough to have been touched by his vigor.

Peace, Glenn.

Oh! I recognize your name! You should know that my Dad spoke very highly of you and with much fondness.

Thank you for your moving comments regarding my Dad. I think you must have really known him by the words you chose to describe him. Please feel free to email me at --redacted---. Again, thank you. I am so very touched.
