Dear Kathleen, Peter and I were so sorry to learn of John’s death. Harry Robertson emailed us as we are on holiday. You and John must have already celebrated your Silver Wedding. We have such happy memories of knowing you both since 1982. Our time together during my term of office as Provost was memorable with John coping so admirably with having a woman to entrust with the chain of office. So sorry to miss John’s funeral when, I am sure many stories will be recounted of our times in Russia and in China. Condolences also to Lynn , Grant and Craig. John was so proud of them and his extended family. Much Love, Jean and Peter McCormack
