Messages of Condolence

  1. I am so sorry to hear about your loss. I shared an office and labs with Dick for many years at NASA GRC. We went to lunch together on occasion and he was a pleasure to be around. This is sad news and I hope that you and your family members have a healthy and timely recovery from your loss.
