Condolence From: Molly LeVan, North Haven, CT
Condolence: My deepest condolences to the Zdanis family. It was my honor to work for Dr. Zdanis in the office of the provost at JHU in the mid1970s. He was smart, he was fun, he was kind, and he was encouraging.
Condolence From: Warren Moos, Baltimore, MD
Condolence: I first met Dick as a colleague at Hopkins in 1964 and then followed his career in University administration. We were reunited at AUI, where I continued to enjoy his insight. I sorrow at his passing. Please accept my sympathy and condolences at this time of loss.
Condolence From: Martha Haynes, Ithaca, NY
Condolence: I am deeply saddened to learn of Dick's passing. Serving on numerous boards and committees tasked with managing major US astronomical facilities, he was always thoughtful and wise and, with Bobbie at his side, also warm and generous. He will always be a star in my sky.

Condolence: It is with sadness that I write this note of sympathy upon the death of Dick Zdanis. He was an absolutely wonderful colleague and I thoroughly enjoyed being a Board member of Associated Universities with him. His advice was always helpful and insightful.
I am grateful that I have been able to share work and leisure time with him and Bobbie. Both Jean and I will continue to remember hem in our prayers and thoughts in the coming days.
Condolence From: Barry Cooperman, Philadelphia, PA
Condolence: Dear Bobbi:
