Vic was a great inspiration to me throughout my early career in wildlife veterinary medicine and I feel privileged to have learnt all I know about wildlife post-mortem work from him. More importantly, though Vic was a beautiful person. Thank you Vic. And my very best wishes to your family and friends.

As new wildlife veterinarian it was very inspiring for me to meet Vic two years ago at the EWDA Conference in Berlin and hear about his amazing career in this field. In addition to being a pioneering vet he was also an absolutely wonderful person who took the time to speak to everybody in person. He will be greatly missed. Helle B.

Dear Jane and family, It was such a shock to hear this news...Vic has always seemed 'evergreen' over the years I have known him. His humour and knowledge has illuminated so many lives. The time we worked together was brief but such a privilege and is fondly remembered. Much of what I learnt, his meticulous technique and analytical approach, has been deployed in my career ever since. No-one has had a more positive influence on my approach to veterinary work than Vic. I hope I found time to thank him. There are not many who can be both forthright and universally liked and respected, as he was, and still fewer who have achieved so much in the cause of understanding and conserving our precious wildlife. He will be so missed. My thoughts are with you all. Phill Elliott

Dear Jane We are writing this from Kenya. We remember so well when you and Vic visited us here, at our home at Kabete, in the early 1970s. We are very sorry to hear of Vic's death. He contributed so much to tropical veterinary medicine and wildlife pathology. We also want to pay special tribute to you for all you did to support Vic and his work. In that vein, we were delighted to see that the Wildlife Disease Association (WDA),in its tribute to Vic, features a photograph of both of you - looking very happy. We are thinking of you at this time, please let us know if we can help in any way. Our very best wishes John and Margaret Cooper
