>> and
>> was President of our Diabetics Division. He also served on our R&D
>> Committee, among many other things, for many years. Even if you hadn't

>> Mike, you probably knew him from his extraordinarily deep voice, as a
>> human
>> sign, at NFB conventions. I and others participated on a Conference Call
>> with him this past Tuesday, and he sounded good, so this came as a shock!
>> Mike, thank you, and we will miss you!
