Ralph and Family – so sorry to hear about your Dad – sounds like he lived an incredible life and raised an incredible family. Ralph – I always enjoyed visiting The Colgate Cambridge facility because I knew I’d have chance to hang out with you Ralph and have burger over at Burger King on our lunch break. Losing your Dad is a tough time, but I’m sure all the love that he had for you will sustain you forever. Your old work buddy……. Dr. Tom Connors.
