    Dear Hilda and family”
    It is with deep regret that i heard of the death of your husband. I did not realize that he was ill as I am out of country at this time.

    I worked for Joe as his private Secretary when we moved to the new part of the old children’s Hospsital and I greatly respected him. He was a very intelligent, kind and gentle man who worked very hard for the good of the children and their families.

    Respectfully
    Marian Erickson

    Hilda, Brian, Ken, Michael & Families,

    Our condolences on Hossein’s passing. We all loved him for his intelligence and as a wonderful human being. Whilst a top doctor and professor, he was firmly grounded, with a modesty that belied his abilities. When our Peter abrubtly quit smoking the pipe after experiencing some heart trouble (a remarkable feat considering that the pipe was a part of his personality and lifestyle), the trigger point was Hossein telling him he had to do it for his health. When Hossein spoke, Peter listened, as he had immense respect for his knowledge and judgment.

    With love,
    ~ The Greteners

    When Dr. Moghadam sat on the admissions committee for the medical school at UCalgary, he was unfailingly thoughtful, kind, respectful, humble and fair. Although that was more than 20 years ago and I have seen him only rarely since, his warmth and decency are remembered still. He was a wonderful human being and I am so, so sorry for your loss.
