Chong and I were very saddened by the news of Cap's passing. Cap was a very intelligent, kind and gentle soul who was full of confidence. He was so down to earth with his dry sense of humor and willingness to take the time to offer counsel and advice about life and career. May you rest in peace my friend; we will miss you so much.
