Dear AVAP Members,

On behalf of all of us at Kansas State University who knew Chris Gruber, I want to express my heartfelt thanks for your most generous donation to the memorial scholarship established in his honor.  You were much more than his professional colleagues; you were his friends.  As Chris and I traveled the country together, he often reflected on the amazing fellowship that he had with so many of you.  He always looked forward to your meetings and made it a priority to take as many of our staff to the AVMA annual meeting as he possibly could, not just to learn how to be better stewards of the work responsibilities, but to experience the camaraderie that exists among you.  It was a privilege to attend part of your meeting in Chicago this week.  You are a very special  group of people who get to work on a day-by-day basis with people who really care for a cause.  This gift from you means more to us than words can express.  I know that Chirs’ family will be deeply touched by your expression of love and respect for Chris.

Sincerely,
Ralph C. RichardsonDVM, Dipl ACVIM (Oncology, Internal Med)
