Dear Stella, Anat, Gilat and family, we are very saddened by the passing of Yigal. We loved him very much, he was a wonderful man. We have very fond and lasting memories of him in Montreal and us with you. He will be missed. I personally will never forget and always be grateful to Yigal for giving me the encouragement and confidence to pursue drug development and not just research. It was the love of his profession that allowed me to make the transition, and which I never looked back. Thank you Yigal and Rest In Peace.
Love Karen , Sandra and Carlota
