To The Editor_O'Connor
Patricia Herbich O’Connor
Editor’s note: Back in the early days of IDR I often didn’t have much cash when I went out of town, and didn’t have a credit card for a number of years. At one Offshore Technology Conference in Houston, I ran out of money about 24 hours before the conference ended. I was starting to get pretty hungry when I ran into John Herbich, who was presenting a paper there. He graciously bought me lunch when I described my plight, and I have always remembered and been grateful to him for that. John was a good friend and will be sorely missed in the industry.
