I am sorry to be unable to come to this memorial and celebration of Dustin’s life and work.  His death was a shock to all!

Dustin was one of my outstanding students-personally magnetic and delightful.  He was brilliant- with a beautiful mind, and mentoring Dustin was a privilege for me.  In fact I learned a great deal from him- from his curiosity and questioning.  He was a wonderful teaching assistant and showed great  depth of under-standing of the practical and theoretical aspects of artificial intelligence.

Gloria and I enjoyed seeing Dustin from time to time since his graduation from MIT and we both will miss him.

Our deepest condolences to his other friends- and his family.
