I thought he would last forever -- too tough to die. He was a hall of fame player, teacher and personality.

The last time I saw him was at the Weil Hall celebration of his 90th birthday. I congratulated him on reaching a nice round number, and he grabbed my hand in an iron grip and said "I'm going for 100."

Good bye, Kal.
