Dear Patrick and Family,Agnes and I were saddened to hear of the passing of Pauline this week. She was a fondly remembered colleague from the years that I was a member of the Lorand laboratory. She was always kind and helpful to me and when I first started showed me ‘the ropes’ so that I quickly got off to a productive tenure in the lab. We are so sorry for your loss.Jim and Agnes Radek
