I can't think of calling him anything but Dr. Somerville, even though over the many years our relationship eventually changed from student-mentor to colleagues and good friends. He was my Ph.D. adviser, but it was also with his encouragement and support that I undertook my studies in the first place. He continued both his encouragement and support through my post-doctoral years and even as I became faculty, has he wrote uncountable letters of reference, and was always willing to provide advice. I admired his keen intelligence, as well as his patient and generous nature. I am so sad to lose Dr. Somerville. I will miss him the rest of my life. My heart goes out to Joyce and all of his children and grandchildren.
