Jimmy's Statement on Gerry

Last night (7/06/07, Manila time) I received an e-mail from Jimmy
(Dr. Jaime Caro, Asst. Vice-President for Development, University of the Philippines)
regarding the death of our colleague Gerry (Dr. Gerardo Trinidad). (See my earlier blog post "Farewell, Gerry!").

Jimmy succeeded me as president of the Computing Society of the Philippines (CSP).
Jimmy, Caslon (Dr. Caslon Chua), Henri (Dr. Henry Adorna) and myself constitute
the CSP Board Executive Committee.

Below is Jimmy's statement on Gerry:

We are very much saddened by this event.

Gerry certainly contributed substantially to our efforts in developing
CS education and research in this country. His dedication and
commitment to CSP and our cause is something we will never forget. His
place in CSP and the Philippine computing community, as well as being
one of our foremost, or maybe our foremost supporter in the
international community, he will be very difficult to replace.
