Dear Friends and Colleagues:

It is with great regret and deep sadness that I sit here this
evening. Just a short while ago I logged on ready to continue an
on-going dialog with Herman. Instead I find he has been snatched
away from us leaving a void it will be hard to fill.

I first met Herman in 1979, when he served on my Doctoral Committee
as an External Examiner. Our common interest in 3-D tracking
brought us together, and in the years that followed we became
good friends. I would often send him a note in the middle of the
night, only to get an immediate response. He never rested.

We will all miss his contributions and his friendship. My thoughts
go out to his wife and family, for their loss is the greatest.

Herman, my friend, good night once again. May you rest in peace.
