|Dear Savas, Niki and Vina,
Our deepest condolences and sympathy for Pavlos' loss. It is difficult to express my feelings for the loss of a valuable friend of 36 years, but let me just say that good friends enrich one's life. Pavlos certainly enriched my life and the lives of his friends, students and colleagues. He was an internationally respected scientist with a passion for reasoning through complex situations, whether in urban geography, transportation, mathematical modelling and computer coding, politics, economics or film/book critiquing.
I will never forget our trip to New York circa 1985 and our experience at a Japanese restaurant. And more than three decades of Christmas and Easter celebrations.
He was a friend and mentor to me.
Our thoughts are with you,
