I met Prof and Avis in 2005 in Sydney while i was a student at Macquarie University and had a beautiful relationship with them. They were more like my parents and i visited them quite often. I came back home in 2007 and kind of lost touch with them along the way. I was shocked when i googled Prof and saw this tribute. I am really saddened by his passing. i hope Avis is doing fine though. Please forward my email address to her(email@example.com) so i can get in touch with her. May his soul rest in peace.
My deepest sympathy goes out to Rod's devoted wite Avis and his loving children. I met Avisi and Rod in London over 2 decades ago and was struck by the depth of their attachment to one another. I have cherished their friendship and although it is nearly a year since we lost Rod , fond memories remain. The man was a genius. I know nothing about psychometrics, but I do know something about poetry and Rod had more poetry committed to memory than anyone I have ever known. His passing is a great loss, but it was a privilege to know him.
Dear Uncle Rod, I will never forget your always soothing voice, your sense of humor and your calm manner. I love you. Your niece, Shereen
Thank you Rod, for your example. We have been enriched by your kindness, wisdom, grace, and gentle goodness. May Avis and all of your family be blessed in the coming years with the memory of your benevolent and generous life.
Such a loss. Kind, loving, brilliant Rod. You were so loved and will be so missed.
Our deepest sympathy to Avis and family, we will miss him so very much, John, Helen and Eden
