    To Mrs. Perng, Hao Hao and Perng Family;

    I was saddened of Dr. Perng’s passing. He was truly a kind and gentle man. I have sweet memories of our family pot luck dinners when we lived in Kansas. Wishing you and your family comfort during this time of loss.

    Saddened to learn of Dr. Perng’s passing more than 4 years ago. He was one of the best professors I had at Kansas State University more than 40 years ago. He made difficult concepts understandable.
