It was my honor to have been able to meet and spend time with John and other members of the 383rd Anti Aircraft battalion at their annual reunion.  My life is certainly richer for those times.  I also fell in love with Lois for her wit, good humor, and the goodies she alwaus brought.  My deepest sympathies.  Susan
