    I am so sorry to learn of Dr. Orville's death. He was a wonderful person and an excellent scientist. The scientific world got a bit sadder and a bit smaller. Sincerely, James Huning National Science Foundation

    Dear Laura and Harry's family: We will miss Harry. He was such a nice person as well as being a great scientist, educator and mentor. This is the end of an era in cloud and storm modeling. Sincerely, Bill Cotton Professor Emeritus Colorado State University

    Dr. Orville was that wonderful, rare combination of great scientist and instructor. I enjoyed the class he taught and the hospitality he and Laura showed to the grad students. My deepest sympathy to his family and everyone at IAS.
