“My dad’s wisdom, generosity, empathy, and humility had a huge influence on people around the world.”

“I knew their love and support were unconditional, even when we clashed in my teenage years. I am sure that’s one of the reasons why I felt comfortable taking some big risks when I was young, like leaving college to start Microsoft with Paul Allen,” he said.

“We worked together at the foundation not so much as father and son but as friends and colleagues,” he said.

“When we started doing so in a big way at the foundation, we had no idea how much fun we would have. We only grew closer during more than two decades of working together.”
