“The San Francisco SMI meeting seems like only yesterday, but through the years since that meeting you have helped all of us build a solid foundation for the SMI that will last well into the future. It has been your energy, insights, experience and tremendous attitude that have turned this society into a well-tuned, professionally run organization, and built its annual meeting into an internationally renowned platform for reporting on the most important advances in molecular imaging. You should be very proud knowing that you have contributed greatly to this emerging field, and we are all indebted to you for helping us build a vibrant organization that serves the imaging community so well.

You have helped convert a vision into a reality, and even though you have left the SMI in the very capable hands of Charles and his team, we will miss you very much.”
