Who else am I just not ready to put down here?

Morro Rock is Still Here


Last Great Colleague in Delaware Gone--Charles E. Robinson

Last October 25 Charlie Robinson sent out a group email saying he had cancer and telling everyone not to contact him again.

I respected his wishes, but yesterday I sent him an email with "You don't have to answer" in the subject line and just saying this:
but you should know we are thinking about you.
Hershel

Today his widow answered. Charlie died 20 November 2016.

So we are mourning, and it's never too late for mourning.
