Condolences Example 4 for tragic death

Dear Family of George Williams,

I was shocked and saddened to learn about the sudden demise of my dear friend George. I have known him for over thirty years. He was more than a colleague he was a dear friend. He was very helpful, optimistic and championed the cause of science worldwide. He paid special attention to young people and worked hard to share his love of science to his students. He had time for everybody. His office was always full of young scientists seeking advice, which he readily gave. George worked very hard for the development of science in the developing countries in his position as head of the Office of External Activities. I send my deepest condolences to his family and the scientific community. We shall miss him.
