Albany, NY (February 28, 2011)

"I was shocked and saddened to learn of the sudden passing this weekend of Dr. Richard F. Daines. Dr. Daines worked tirelessly to improve the health of all New Yorkers, and his knowledge and deep faith has left a lasting impression on all those who worked with him. This is a tremendous loss not just for the state, but for the entire medical community. I extend my heartfelt condolences to Dr. Daines' wife Linda, his three children, William, Katherine and Andrew, his parents, siblings and friends."
