Mort was one of those individuals for which we can say "the world is a better place because he was there". His wit, intelligence, grace and twinkle made him a thoroughly delightful person to work with. I had the honor of knowing Mort over the last two years as we discussed in his investment in NetClarity and other ventures.
Mort was one of those rare men of action who looked you in the eye, told you what he was going to do and did what he said he was going to do.
I will miss him.
