Dear Chris - It has been such a long time since I have seen you - likely my wedding! but I have kept up through John and I wanted you to know that I was thinking of you at this sad time - I never had the chance to meet your Dad - (or Mom) - but I knew you to be a kind and gentle soul with heart - a good "kid" - so that has to have come from their hearts, as well - just believe in Heaven and take care Chris...

It was a privilege to have known Richard while he served on the board of Epitope, Inc. Extremely insightful but humble, his breadth of knowledge and sense of humor contributed to Epitope's success and to my personal growth.
