Dear Nancy,    (01)

Very sorry to hear this. I want to extend my most sincere condolences
to you, Jason and Noah.    (02)

Mike has been an inspiration to me, and a role model to a lot of us in
the ontology and semantic technology community.    (03)

May he rest in peace!    (04)

Very sincerely. =ppy    (05)
