The first letter that I wrote you was to congratulate you on becoming the President of Santa Clara University. Through the years I have written you many letter telling you how great I felt that the University was doing because of your outstanding leadership. After the new Avenue was put in my daughter, an alum, said to me Mom it really looks like a Major Univeristy now. You and I have always known that. To be an acqaintance of yours and a letter writing friend had been a pleasure for me. You were a kind, compassionate man who took time with everyone - students, faculty, donors, ordinary people. You brought this university into the future with your brilliant leadership. Thank you. You will be missed.
