Young and Yeon Yu, Owners of Harper Dental Laboratory, North Providence, RI, were murdered in their home in July; their mentally disturbed, eldest son has been charged with the murders. "This is shocking," says Ted VanValey, Owner of Orbix Dental Products, Sudbury, MA. "The Yus were friends and customers of Orbix and we helped them set up their first lab in Massachusetts, here in Sudbury."
The Yu's younger sons are still in college. David Yu is a senior at Fordham University and Andrew Yu is a junior at Columbia University; both are majoring in Political Science and hope to attend law school after graduation. "Both boys are unbelievably bright and talented. I'm hoping industry members will join together to help them continue their education," says VanValey.
