Thank you for all of your love, friendship and support! These last months have have helped us realize how many different and wonderful sides there were to our dad. We anticipate that his memorial next Monday will again highlight not only dad's sheer brain power and accomplishments, but the manner in which, in his extremely humble way, he deeply touched so many people in so many different walks of life.
