Payton Memorial Guestbook Entry

It was a regret to learn of the passing of Robert L. Payton. I met Robert at ELI which was one of the pinnacle experiences of my career in philanthropy. His gracious leadership as he took us through ELI was always evident, and it was truly wonderful to spend time thinking about the "why" of our profession and craft. It has caused me to reflect further that Robert Payton one who delighted in this great conversation and inspired us to come along on the journey only made us better not only as fund raising executives but as people.
