Dear Advisory Committee Members, Chairs, TAG, and other valued  
participants in the W3C Community;

Earlier this week, we received tragic news.

Chimezie Ogbuji of Cleveland Clinic is a long-time advocate and  
implementor of Semantic Web technologies, applying them especially to  
health care delivery. He is an active and valuable contributor to the  
W3C Semantic Web Health Care and Life Sciences Interest Group.

Chime and Roschelle, his wife, had gone out to dinner this past Friday  
evening. They came home to find their home in flames. Their three  
young daughters, Imose Ikpea, age 6; Chikaora Ogbuji, age 2; and  
Anyachiemeka Ogbuji, 14 months; died as a result of the fire [1].

We at W3C wish to extend our deepest sympathies and support to Chime,  
Roschelle, and the extended Ogbuji family. For those of you who know  
Chime and his brother Uche, information on ways to express your  
support is available from the Sussex Community Association: <http://www.sussexassociation.com/ 
 >http://www.sussexassociation.com

Please feel free to forward this email publicly to others who may know  
Chime or Uche, and who would want to provide them support in the wake  
of this devastating loss.
