I am very sad to hear about the loss of your father, even ten years after
the event.  I suspect I may be losing my own fairly soon.

Your dad seems to have been a real renaissance man!  And thirteen kids...
Wow!  I have an uncle that I never got to meet, who was in some ways cut
from similar cloth.  He was an IBM Fellow, and I also think inducted into an
engineering hall of fame.  But did I inherit "good at math" genes?  Nope!

>Lots to like. Lots not to. But certainly not someone you'd ever

Yeah, I know about that...

Best wishes,
