One Response to Memorial meeting: advance notice

  1. Orson Olson says:

    I am one of the more distant, “online” friends of Nigel, who was deeply affect by this man’s prodigious, and manifold scientific interests ever since being a teenage science geek. I come the North Central United States, and I look forward to meeting other people, to celebrate his life, steadfast work, and shared curiosity and visions.

    My calendar is marked, and I will check back to see that I can make this memorial event. ‘Thank you’ to everyone I’m yet to meet (or may never meet). He brought us together.
