I give a lot of talks and I get introduced a lot. Sometimes it gets a little hyperbolic and I often quip, "God, I wish my mom were here to hear that." Well, my mom is here today and I'm just thrilled to see so many very close friends and colleagues coming out to celebrate the beginning of my tenure as dean. My whole lab is here; two of my college roommates; my first graduate student, Eugene Koh, now a distinguished spine surgeon. My five brothers and sisters, I believe together for the first time since my father's funeral. My wonderful wife, Amy. My two great sons Jack and Nick, and my mom. I love you all.
