The first thing comes to my mind when I think of you (Alan) is the level of comfort I felt with each time I entered your office. You helped me always think and find answers to my queries, you set my feet on the right path.
You're one of the most special person that had kept a profound influence in my life! You've helped me look at things in a different manner and opened my eyes to many ignored truths.
Your influence is something I would carry with me for the rest of my life!
