Professor Emeritus Reynolds was oft known as the "heart and soul" of our Law School. Indeed, the impression he left on thousands in this grateful community will remain strong for generations to come. Even now, long months after his passing, a fresh touch of gentle grief crosses the faces of those who encounter his name or spirit. Accordingly, to give permanent recognition to such an amazing teacher and mentor, we at the Northern Illinois University Law Review are honored to bring you Tributes to Professor Emeritus Daniel Reynolds. These Tributes come to us as far away as Bordeaux, France--showing us how this great man's influential life reached as far as the sea is wide. In soliciting these Tributes, we asked authors to share stories, personal memories, and kind words indicating the lasting legacy he leaves behind both here and beyond. Except for minor style editing, we kept the voices of the authors genuine and original. The words printed herein are their words. Therefore, on behalf of James D. LeVault (Editor-in-Chief), the Editors and Staff, and all of us here at the Northern Illinois University Law Review, thank you for taking the time to get to know this great man. And, we sincerely hope that you enjoy perusing these Tributes as much as we have. Professor Reynolds, wherever you are, you are sorely and sincerely missed.
