I do have one question — What is the probability that I will die during this procedure? It was the third time that day that he had asked that question. Dad had already ripped through the radiologist, the pathologist, the oncologist and a couple of nurses with his probability questions. Dr: The same probability as crossing the street. Dad: Do you know what that probability is? Because I do.
Dr: Well not exactly, but I am sure it is very low. Dad: Doctor, how many of these do you do a month? Dr: Hmmmm, well I probably do one a month. Dad: Do you live around here? Had a busy day?
This is the set up, when he lets the Dr think he is done with the number oriented questions - and moves to a more friendly conversation, as friendly as one can be when they are about to get a 18 inch tube inserted in their chest. Dr: small talk Dad: So getting back to your career — how many of these procedures have you done in your career? Dr: Hmmm , maybe , have not really thought about it — yes I have done of these. Dad: Good. How many years have you been in practice? Dr: 25 years. Dr: To your lung, yes I am pretty close.
I have to be close to get the needle in. Dad: No, pretty close; it is 1. Dr: What is 1. Dad: The number of times a month you have done this procedure over the past 25 years, 1.
Dr: looks at me Me: shoulder shrug — Tried to warn you!
Dr: You are really good at math. Dad: Very — and laughs. Dad just loved numbers; every day was a numbers day for Dad! Dad always thought in numbers.
He tracked everything! Well in our house it was a tattered and torn piece of blue and red columned paper stapled to an old piece of cardboard. Heather and I knew it well. He tracked every heating bill for every year we had been in the house.
Showing little increase in our bills. You guessed it. Dad no longer had to pay the heating bills. And boy was it toasty in his place.
He counted the pounds of lamb he ordered or bought in this folder see — folder 7 titled LAMB, starting in July all the way to — over 17, pounds of lamb chops! He tracked chops cooked per year, chops cooked per summer, in , in he called it the ovine budget.
He even tracked dinner parties; some of you are mentioned in this folder. He saw math as just plain fun, everything could be reduced to numbers, he took great delight in calling me every Sunday during college and even into grad school, the conversation went like this.
It was English Lit exam for goodness sake. Dad: Did you ask the professor?
Me: Yes after class, like you want me too and she did not know. Dad just thought that conversation was so much fun, and could not understand why I did not think it was as much fun and why all professors did not run standard deviations on their grades. My Birthday is August I am sure there was more than one correct answer but I did figure it out. Can you imagine the horror — I failed a Math Regents Exam and Dad loved numbers probably as much as he loved me, AND he was Professor of Statistics, at an Ivy League University — this was not such a swell time for me… I tried telling him that only 5 of 35 students passed in the class and surely the teacher had some blame here — which made him even angrier!
I was in shock, and so it would be. I was not able to do anything with my new Florida friends until I had completed the 50 question practice regent exam.
Dad had brought with him a box of practice exams which I proceeded to take and he proceed to grade every Saturday; usually followed by a math lesson — with extra problems in the areas I had missed — this is how every Saturday started for me, for an entire school year of Saturdays as I completed tenth grade in Tallahassee Florida.
One day one of my new Florida friends came over a bit early and knocked on the door looking for me. Why is he making you take tests for NYS? You see in NY we have these tests, called Regent Exams, and they are state wide. I passed the exam in June with a score of 98 and never failed another Regents Exam or any exam for that matter, but more importantly I learned the importance of perseverance.
Dad taught me to stick with it, work hard and keep working hard, and if you fail or miss something get back at it and finish it properly. He did it because he was a teacher and it was what he did, but more importantly he did it because he loved me and wanted me to do the best I could. He wanted me to succeed. He taught me a valuable life skill that has served me well.
So now we come to my final theme on celebrating Dad — showing up. He said you can talk all you want, but the best way to show you care is to show up — just plain show up. And show up he did, to high school track meets, home and away, swim meets, home and away horseback shows, visits at summer camp and he traveled all over the northeast to track meets when I was competing in college, he came to NJ when my apartment burned down, he came and helped me start a garden in my first house.
And he showed up every month when I was in undergrad to take me to lunch at the Rusty Nail in Cortland, just the two of us. We would talk about college, of course my grades, my trips for track and about my classes. And about all the professors who should be getting exams back the next day like he did with standard deviations included.
And after every home track meet he would take me and three of my teammates, Rhonda, Suzanne, and Jan to dinner at the Rusty Nail and we would order strawberry daiquiris, we thought it was so cool.
It was my senior year. I had just finished my leg of the mile relay in an outdoor track meet at Colgate, in April, the one where we had to shovel snow off the track! One of the women on the Colgate team crossed the line and came over to me. We had developed a friendship over the 4 years we competed against each other, in both indoors and outdoors. I have heard him now for 8 track seasons!
Perseverance, and showing up are traits that took Dad time and effort to demonstrate; it was his way of loving us, and teaching us valuable life skills. As for the numbers part I will never be at his level, I still cannot read his books, but I could beat him in cribbage once in a while and I have learned that numbers can be fun. In closing I would like to leave you with a smile — On 4th April Dad wrote a letter about Split Pea Soup — which also happened to be the last thing he asked my husband Ted to heat up for him the night before he died — not any split pea soup but Progresso split pea.
Dear Chefs, For several years as an year-old widower living alone I have become an ardent consumer of your green pea split soup with the flavor of bacon but why are you now adding potatoes? I know it is cheaper for you, no doubt, but it greatly lessens the flavor of the soup. By the time of the opening of the can of soup the potato is a soft soggy mass, like a third grade tofu. Please revert to a no spud recipe. His teaching, his research, his published works, his students, his career, his success.
He certainly touched a lot of lives through his statistics.
One night after dinner Dad excused himself to go and grade exams. He felt strongly that students should get their results the day following the exam.
He went to his study, which was just off the kitchen. Susan and I and Mom started doing the dishes. We suddenly heard banging and some low decibel swearing.
I looked at Mom. She quietly closed the kitchen door. The banging began again and the obscenities were now grammatically recognizable.
She quietly turned up the kitchen stereo. Minutes later the banging and swearing reached a level that no kitchen door or amplified Mozart could minimize.
We all rushed into the study. Dad was nowhere to be found. Again, the banging. But coming from the family room in the basement. What we discovered was that Dad has gone downstairs to use the bathroom and when he went to leave the loo the door handle had come off in his hand and he was trapped, screaming for assistance so as to get back to his exams.
I opened the book and began to leaf through it. Many years later I was living and working in Minneapolis and he came to visit. I had invited a friend and her young son Trevor for dinner. We had just about finished and Trevor had been excused to watch TV, as the adult conversation seemed to no longer pique the curiosity of a 9-year-old. He was always home on the weekends. He was present and generous with his time.
He had time for swim meets and track meets and horse shows and dance recitals. He taught me to ski and sail and play cribbage and balance a checkbook.
He built an ice rink in the back yard and taught me to skate.

He encouraged me to read and taught me to garden and got to know my friends. He found the time for anything I took an interest in and many things he thought I should take an interest in.
Dad captured that elusive balance we all chase between home and family and work and career. And he did it brilliantly every day I knew him. He was incredibly successful in the field of statistics. I think everyone in this room recognizes that. But to me, his incredible success was as a father. The clock comes complete with the answer key. The meeting was held at the University of Waikato, Hamilton. References Graybill, F.

At the same time, it opened doors to a whole world of ideas. What we discovered was that Dad has gone downstairs to use the bathroom and when he went to leave the loo the door handle had come off in his hand and he was trapped, screaming for assistance so as to get back to his exams.
