It is indeed almost unbearable to think of Gary no longer being around to continue the fight that was his life and to poke fun at cant and pomposity and to be there to bring clarity, comfort and humor to friends in bad times. It was hard to imagine when he first arrived at HLS how he would be able to continue the commitments he had brought with him. I worked closely with him in the setting up of the Northeastern Law School partnership in the founding days of the Legal Services Institute, and it
was truly a joy to observe and for a few years to be part of his lifetime commitment to bring legal services to people who just don't count to the huge majority of the elite academy. What a terrible loss.
