Dear Fellow Biomechanists:

Wow. This news of Herman Woltring's death hits me very hard. Herman had
become my email "pen pal" since the inception of biomch-l. Although I had met
Herman at professional meetings prior to the UCLA ISB meeting, it is there
that he and I struck up a friendship and began corresponding via email on a
regular basis. I could ask him questions about anything related to
biomechanics at virtually any hour of the day or night and get prompt replies
back (many times within minutes). He was absolutely instrumental in bringing
biomechanics to the age of electronic communication and for his efforts in
facilitating my understanding of the field I will be forever grateful. To my
friend and colleague; Herman, I will miss you.
