Some people are destined through God given talent, self initiative and inspiration to pave the road for others, set a stellar example, and touch the lives of many in an exceptionally meaningful way.

With love, Vivian Tsai Landry

Emma, Pat and I express our sadness at John's passing . He was man whose contributions to Purdue ,the Krannert School and the community were never fully appreciated. We enjoyed your friendship and hospitality--what great dinners! He was a stimulating friend and colleague. He exemplifies the meaning of a rich full life.

Emma: I was so sorry to hear about John, who was a key figure in the development and success of the Krannert SchooI. I remember him very fondly, for his helping me make the transition here to the faculty in my early days at Krannert. He was kind and generous with his time, and I honor his memory as well as his accomplishments. My best to you and the family.

My sentiments to Ema e the Tse Family. John and Ema gave to a freezing foreign student and his family from Brazilian such warmth, hospitality, and love that kept us happy and going through a masters and PhD. In the cold winters of Indiana, they were a life saver. BTW did I mentioned they feed us too. Lots, and lots of great food. Our love and prayers.
