To the Maiorisi family. I was so saddened to hear of Richard's death. As president of a large physician organization, I had the pleasure of working with and getting to know Richard quite well during his time at Blue Cross. I can't recall a nicer and more ethical person that I have worked with than Richard. He was just a great guy. He turned what could have been difficult and contentious discussions into honest, productive and friendly negotiations. It must be such a loss for you. I will never forget him.

Colossians Chapter 3: Whatever you do, do from the heart, as for God and not for men, knowing that you will receive from God due payment of the inheritance of heaven. THIS WAS MR. MAIORISI THROUGH AND THROUGH! Enjoy heaven!
