Good bye Aki

It’s not right. But you’re gone, and we’ll miss you.

My deepest condolences go to Aki’s family, and to everyone whose paths were graced by crossing that of Aki.

You were someone in whose presence we felt inspiration and energy.

You were a remarkably gifted physician. One of my proudest moments was when you agreed with one of my diagnoses.

You were a scientist. A brilliant wonderful joyous human scientist, wanting to see the data, to make sure you had the best chance of helping.

When we first spoke about your ideas, I realised you could change the world. God you were so humble.

Aki you were¬†brave and strong and beautiful. I’m lucky I knew you. I’ll sure miss you.
