A good colleague and friend

Wenbo and I finished our PhDs at approximately the same time, and in the same subject. I was impressed by his early successes in the area of the small ball problem. I would not intersect with him again until just 4 years ago, when my own work again touched upon this problem. We collaborated on some workshops, and it was a great pleasure to get to know him again. He was generous, and open to new ideas, and new collaborations. His recent CBMS lectures was a fine summary of years of his work. I had seen him just recently, in Atlanta, and we were planning new collaborations. What a pity to have lost him too soon. But, our loss is only a shadow of the loss of those closest to him. --Michael Lacey
