    Lillian and I send our condolences to the Larner family at this unexpected news. Joe Larner was among the first people I met in being recruited to UVa, and may have been the most responsible of all in overcoming some of the hurdles that led me to accept. He was also directly responsible for much of my success, in his facilitating the recruitment of at least four of the new faculty with scientific interests and goals. Those were pursued in collaboration with members of his department, including both of the Nobel winners and also Michael Peach and Kevin Lynch. I always considered him a friend as well as a colleague, and have been especially impressed at his continuing scientific pursuits after "retirement". And then, of course, there is our shared love and that of our families for Wellfleet. He will be greatly missed.
