“ When I first heard the news, I struggled to find the right words but there were simply none. And there are still none. Ali was a kind, gentle and compassionate man, who cared deeply about the institutions in which he worked and all the people who worked with him. It will be a loss for us all, and I am personally reeling from the news. I will miss our periodic catch ups over wine.
My deepest sympathies to Ann and his family.
May his memory be a blessing. ”
