    Khos was a good friend and coworker through our P&S years. We both shared the Bellevue internship/residency experience under Dr. Charles Ragan. My condolences to his family; he will be missed by all who were fortunate to have known him.

    Very sorry to hear of his passing. We both worked at Dr. Paul Burnham's statistics office at Yale. We became very friendly. I remember urging him to attend a past reunion, perhaps our 55th, so we could catch up. But regrettably that did not happen. My condolences. I will always remember him.
