Oh my goodness...I didn't expect to be mentioned!  I
had to reread that paragraph about ten times to make
sure I wasn't seeing things.  What a nice article.  It
is certainly an honor to be mentioned as a small part
of Dr. Ostrom's vast legacy, thank you very much Mr.
Hecht, and to Dr. Holtz for posting the link.  Dr.
Ostrom really was an inspiration for so many people. 
Today at the footprint site (silly as it sounds) it
really felt like he was there in spirit.  An amazing
scientist and gentleman...he'll truly be missed.
