Sandy - We're so sorry to hear of Elliott's passing. He was a good friend and great colleague (along with me, he was the only remaining founding member of our department), and I will always fondly remember our evenings of cooking and making music with the two of you, way back when. Up until COVID, he would stop in my office every time he was on campus and we'd kibbitz and trade our mutual repertoire of dated Borscht Belt jokes, something that I've sorely missed over the last 20 months. Our thoughts are with you. Ted & Linda
