  1. I surely learned a lot from him over 2 decades. In his last viewing at the funeral, I felt as if he will just utter another word of wisdom, before leaving us.
    To make you all laugh, he left me with a thought provoking question:
    Talking about Force Majeure in UCP600 Article 36;
    Was Hurricane Sandy act of God or due to global warming?? hence is man made??
    There goes my home owners policy….
    Professor will always be remembered.
