Dear friends in XMCA,

I passed on the conversation about Gunilla Lindqvist we had some weeks
ago to her husband Jan Lindqvist and Gunilla's workmates at Karlstad
University in Sweden (they are not paticipants in xmca). Yesterday I
got a message from them. They are more than happy to see that Gunilla's
work is still alive and they asked me to give you all a Thank You for
remembering Gunilla.

Thank you


Jan Lindqvist
