Sorry to hear another one of your classmates has left this life--you are a good group of people and so hope I get to meet some of you later this Fall/Winter.  I wish Bill had been able to get to the reunion the year he died, 2010, he so looked forward to seeing his classmates again.

My sincere condolences to the family and friends of Lawrence.

Mrs. William Nale
