May his memory be a blessing

I know this is quite late but I would like to express my condolences on the passing of your father, Norm Radin.

The website that you have created in his memory is really beautiful.

I collaborated with Norm after he invented his PDMP compound and together we got an NIH Small Business grant for my company, BIOMOL Research Labs, to synthesize better and more potent analogs of PDMP.

This resulted in a new compound called PPPP.

I very much enjoyed collaborating with him. Apparently he must have felt the same way because he mentioned my name and our joint work in his autobiography.

His autobiography made for some very enjoyable reading. Apparently we had a lot in common – we both started in the field of chemistry at an early age with a home chemistry lab.

May his memory be a blessing.

Warm regards
