It greatly saddens us to learn of the passing of our classmate, Dana Giulian. My wife, Victoria Iwanij, and I were doctoral students with Dana at the Rockefeller University in the 1970's. Dana sent us a lovely gift when our son was born in 1991.

Dear Elaine,
Words can not begin to express our saddness with the loss of Dana. We went to Wis to stay with both families since the beginning of time. I can remember one time he was driving and we had to stop in the road while he waited for the ducks to cross the road (maybe thats how he became known as Dana Duck). I will always remember how he came late after Moms' funeral to visit but came and then again you two came for Jillians and Bill's funeral --we will always remember those acts of kindness....and then to name one of your sons for Bill what an honor for our family. We were speechless. I am sure you know what a completion you and the boys are for him. He finally had the family he always wanted. We will contiune to hope and pray for your peace and comfort.

Elaine, it has been a very long time - I was deeply sadden to hear about Dr. Giulian. I will treasure the fond memories I have of him and the rest of the lab staff, and other personnel working in Neurology 4th floor. I learned a lot from Dr. Giulian. One of the first things Dr. Giulian taught me about preparing (his) grants was that it's not only the content, but it's how it looks on paper. He always made me laugh, everytime he saw me his favorite thing to say was, "Oh, Oh, there trouble!", I'll never forget him. May he rest in peace. I pray that our Lord and Jesus Christ will comfort you and your family during this time of your lost. May God continue to keep you in his perfect peace! Carmen Wallace
