    I am deeply saddened by passing of Dr. Hinman. He was my professor and my supervisor in the graduate school. Dr. Hinman saw a potential in me that no one else did. He was a very kindhearted human being and a great teacher and mentor .
    I will forever be grateful for the opportunities that he gave me. My condolences go to his immediate and extended family. May he rest in peace.
