Subject: From a colleague of Rich Lee 
     Dear Karen,


    You don't know me, but I knew your husband Richard while I was a

     consultant at BT Alex Brown/Deutsche Bank.


     A very good friend of mine, Paul Gill recently informed me of your



     I would like to send you my heart felt condolences. Rich was an

     extraordinarily generous man, in an industry which is not known for

     its generosity or humanity.


     Rich was also unique as a client because he treated me like his

     regular staff. He also did not remove me in light of the pending

     Deutsche Bank take-over. For this I have been eternally grateful. For

     without the BT Alex Brown assignment, I would have struggled to

     support myself through business school.


     I believe, God takes the good ones early because he has grander things

     for them to do. Rich is definitely one of the good ones.


     Once again, I am truly sorry for what has happened to you and your



     My thoughts and prayers are with you.


     God bless
