  10. Mike, Sharon and family, I am so sorry for your great loss. I met and worked with Hugo at Brown University in 1962 when he was the lead technician at the high energy photovoltaic research laboratory. Because Hugo and I were both from RI, we became fast friends. Our friendship continued after he left Brown, when he began his long, successful business ventures. Hugo was a paragon of energy, creativity, honesty, and expertise in his business and personal endeavors. I will miss him. I hope the many dear memories you shared with him will bring you comfort and peace.
