Dear Physics/MagLab Family Members and Friends of Jim
Note that a memorial website where you can upload reminiscences and testimonials has been established for Jim at: http://obits.dignitymemorial.
com/dignity-memorial/obituary. aspx?n=James-Brooks&lc=2326& pid=172613193&mid=6137593,
and a MagLab press release containing a small fraction of the many
responses from Brooks' friends can be found at: http://www.magnet.fsu.edu/
mediacenter/news/ pressreleases/2014/2014sept29. html,
along with a fabulous Show & Tell recording from 2013. Please consider
contributing to these websites since they mean so much to Janet, Jim's
sisters and to all of us. Janet will be in attendance at our
Nov. 6th gathering.
Remembering Jim's delight in exotic foods, light hors d'oeuvres from around the world will be served. Jim loved his Physics/MagLab family and we loved him. He, of course, would want us to carry on having fun,
to continue to do great physics and to keep the sciences at FSU moving forward with maximum possible momentum. Please join us on November 6th to celebrate the life of our beloved and brilliant colleague!
After the refreshments we'll relocate into the lecture hall around 3:30 and have a number of short (<= 5min) statements as follows:
1. welcome, introduction (HDW)
2. eulogy Vladimir Dobrosavljevic
3. comments, reminiscences Greg Boebinger
4. remarks Mark Riley
5. praise of mentor and advisor by Eden Steven
6. remarks by Ross Ellington
7. remarks by Naresh Dalal
8. ..... other comments
Hoping to see you on 6th November.
In the spirit of James Brooks, it should be very informal and relaxed.
Horst, Ingo, Greg, Mark, Eva
