SIEGAL--Richard D. The family of Richard D. Siegal would like to thank the hundreds of people who donated blood and platelets to the Sloan Kettering Blood Bank in Richard's name. His doctors, Dr. Steven Nimer, Dr. Larry Norton, Dr. Scott Hammer, Dr. Shike, Dr. Chawla, Dr. Glickman, Dr. Huang, the staff at ADH and all the people on the 4th and 12th floors who Richard adored, as well as the nurses and physicians from the ICU, who were compassionate caregivers and worked in concert with the family to make Richard comfortable, can never know the level of gratitude the family feels. We also extend our profound thanks to the hundreds of people who came to honor Richard at both the funeral and during our traditional period of mourning. All of this is truly testimony to the expansive and generous life he led and the tremendous number of people whose lives he touched. For those wishing to honor Richard's extraordinary life, donations can be made to MSKCC-Research Dr. Steven Nimer and sent to Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center, Office of Development, 633 3rd Avenue, New York, NY 10017; Att: Ann McSweeny
