From Christina Karns

In some way I don't feel qualified to comment since I didn't know Shlomo well, but my heart goes out to his family and close friends and I wanted to share how he affected those around him. I met Shlomo when I was a graduate student at UC Berkeley. I always admired his cheerful approach to science. He always appeared to be having loads of fun all the while with clever reasoning and highly relevant insights. I found that enthusiasm very inspiring as a young scientist.  My memories of him all seem to include him wearing a beautiful bright color with  an energetic walk and friendly smile.

I just wanted to reach out as a way to honor a good man
