    I am Lizandra Hawkinson, Lowell Hawkinsons 12 year old daughter. These past few months have been really hard. My father was the smartest man I knew. Whenever I had a question he’d always have an answer. I know he was a pioneer in computer language and inspire to do great things like he did. One day I hope to go to Yale and follow the example he set for me. He was so kind to everyone he met and set an example for everyone in computer science. I love him so much and miss him a lot. Everyone who knew him would say he was one of the kindest, bravest, smartest man they have ever met.
