Our hearts go out to all who loved Quinn. He was ever the gracious host when we met while visiting our daughter in Pittsburgh. His loss to the tightly bonded CMU group is beyond the measuring.

I would like to offer my condolences to the entire family. The somber mood of the SEI reflects the impact of this tragedy. Quinn was truly "one of the good guys" and will be missed by all who knew him.
