Karen, I wasn't sure if I should e-mail you yesterday, it's still

overwhelming but I thought you should know how fantastic Rich was as a boss.

We worked at Natwest, he hired me as a programmer to NY office and almost

then left for London but he was closer to us from that office than most

people next door.  As he learned that I enjoy painting as a hobby, he sent

me an easel from London for Christmas! Last year I posted this image on the

Museum of the City of New York. This is for

him... He will remain as one of the most

influential people in my life forever.

Thank you,
