It is with deep sorrow that I must pass on news regarding Dong Han,
a Masters student in our department.|
Last night Mr Han was involved in a traffic accident near Sarnia and Western roads. He was riding a bicycle and was struck by a car. He was taken to hospital, but later that night passed away.
Mr Han was 31 years old and is survived by his wife Lijian Xu and family in Kitchener, California and China. He was a Masters student of Charles Ling, from whom we learned of these events.
To the family, friends and colleagues of Mr Han, we wish to express our deepest sympathy.

Everyone who knows Dong will remember that he was a very helpful and humorous
person. He also worked very hard, and had made great progress in this Msc
thesis. He entered our Msc program only last Sept, and by yesterday, he had
finished written codes for the new algorithm, and obtained all experimental
results. All he had left is to write his thesis. He also had a job waiting
for him in Kitchener.|
Dong passed away peacefully this early morning. A few friends, his wife, and I were with him all the time at Univ Hospital.
I am very sorry to hear the bad news about Dong Han. I can not believe
the fact that he passed away last night since we talked with each other
only a few days ago. Mr. Han was a very nice gentlemen, enthusiastic and
liked to help others. I wish to express my deepest sympathy to his family.|
First, we wish to express our deepest sorrow for Dong. He was a very
kind person and a good friend of ours. If there is anything we could do
to help Dong's family, please let us know.|

I do not think that a few words can express my deepest sorrow feeling at
this moment. Right now in my mind is only his smiling face. We come from same
city in China. I hope I can do something for him.|
In the brief amount of time that I had contact with Dong, he was one of the
most cheerful and pleasant people I have met.|
He always had a smile to give or some humorous observation to bring to light. It is quite unbelievable that only yesterday his light-heartedness was so apparent.
He will be missed.
I feel so sorrowful that I don't know what I should do.
I hope I can do something for him and his family.|
I was astonished when saw this email just now. Can't believe it. He's
such a good person. Why it happens to him? Too sad to say anything...|
