I am unlucky not to get an opportunity to work with you and to have a class with you. You are retiring just after a year I joined the program. However, your work, lectures (especially your recent lecture in RULing) and commitment to excellence inspired me a lot. You have made our department successful. Your career has been and will be model to follow for us. I can speak for all of us that we are sad to see you retiring. We will miss you very much.
