Dear Karen,
Betsy and I sent the following letter and a card to your Prado Lane address, but yesterday it was returned. Would you email me your new address? (dsfolland@gmail.com)
We felt so sad when we read Dick's obituary last week in the Salt Lake Tribune. We grieved for his leaving us, but the obituary brought back so many memories of a good friend and exceptional physician.

I'm sure that Dick waged his battle with cancer valiantly and vigorously, like he approached other challenges in his life. I last spoke with him on his birthday last year. He didn't sound like a person with metastatic cancer. He was enthused by the response that he had experienced from a new type of chemotherapy, was optimistic about the future, yet realistic about what might lie ahead.

I remember eating dinner with Dick at the first American Academy of Pediatrics conference that we attended together. I was struck with how meticulously he trimmed the fat off of the meat on his plate, and how me avoided any butter on his bread. He told me about his family history of heart disease. I was particularly impressed, because my father developed the first signs of heart disease when he was 49 year old, yet I was not as meticulous as Dick. But then, I think Dick approached all of his endeavors with unusual gusto and precision. I think of the intense interest and keen intellect that he displayed as he discussed a patient in kidney failure. I recall his lifetime passion to unlock the mysteries of hemolytic uremic syndrome, and to use this knowledge to better prevent and treat the disease.

Betsy and I recall fondly the relaxing afternoon, pleasant walk, and delicious diner that we enjoyed with both of you at your Heber cabin a few years ago. You opened your hearts and home to us, as you did to so many people over the years.

Death of a loved one is just downright the pits. The sadness we feel is the price we pay for love and caring. And while we haven't been with you and Dick in recent years, we will miss him. Like you, we have many wonderful memories. We hope that these memories will sustain you in the times ahead. We consider ourselves as fortunate for having known Dick as a friend, colleague, mentor, and exceptional physician. Our thoughts and prayers will be with you in the days ahead.
Peace and love,
Dave and Betsy

Dr. Siegler was my Nephrologist for almost 20 years. I believe he saved my life. I developed kidney disease from birth defects. I am now 35 years old, and mother to two amazing children. A life I may have never enjoyed without his help. I know I will miss him, and owe him so much.

Siegler family.

I am so sad to hear of Dr. Siegler's passing. He was my doctor when I first became ill in 1977 and is the reason that I am still going strong after almost 40 years from when I was first diagnosed. He was a wonderful doctor and always believed in me even when my family thought I was on deaths door. His gentle, caring nature and the fact that he didn't scare kids with the white coat (not to mention his brilliance) was so lucky for al of us kids in Utah with Kidney Desease. He was one of a kind and his passing is such a loss. My thoughts are with you all. Cheri Coffey, SLC.

Dear Mrs. Seigler, I am a family practice M.D. in Utah. Because of your husband's generous allowing me to do research with him, I am where I am. I honor and love your dear husband and am so sorry for your loss. Thanks for sharing him with all of us. God Bless you and your family.
