While Ali was Dean at SFU Beedie he made it clear that all people working there were valued and made a special effort to ensure staff voices were heard. I was working late one evening and he came by with his hand written Christmas Card and stopped to chat for a moment and thank me for what I did working with the students. I was surprised and appreciative. I am aware others have shared that same story and it is a powerful one as he made a point to take time out of his busy day to spend time making sure the people who worked for him knew we were all in this together! Safe journey Ali and my condolences to your family and many friends, colleagues and students who will miss you and your warm, generous spirit.
