Thank you Professor Klironomos for sharing the obituary/commentary about
our colleague John Chioles.   I did not know him very well, but the few
occasions I had to interact with him were always pleasant, and they
stimulated good conversation and discussion.  I was particularly impressed
by his enthusiastic support of the graduate students wth whom he
interacted. I also wish to thank you for reminding us that he did in fact
translate Cavafy.  As I said on the occasion of the passing of Thanasis
Maskaleris, that generation is thinning fast and one cannot help but be
reminded and appreciative of their collegiality and their many
contributions to the profession.

May he rest in peace.
