(Radia Perlman)

I wish I’d spent more time with her. I always assumed there would be more opportunities, and I was always “temporarily” so busy.

She has been so important in the field of security, but she was also just a wonderful human being. 

Obviously, she was brilliant. But also, funny, warm, caring.  I feel so lucky to have known her, and honored to consider her a friend.  She has touched many people, as I’ve heard about her passing from so many people, who are all shocked by the suddenness, and will miss her.  Suddenness, I guess is good.  It sounds like she did not suffer, and it’s nice to think of her living her wonderful, adventurous, joyful life to the last moment.
