I have a great appreciation for the late Prof Garde's clear thinking and in depth knowledge displayed in his fluid mechanics books, left behind for all of us, specifically me, (curious by nature)helping me to understand complicated engineering in such a logical way. He is now an icon my life.
I worked with him together more then two decades. I am realy missing him.
