Updates for November 2021

Recent updates include:
As previously mentioned on the website, my wife and best friend of 40 years went to be with the Lord in mid-December 2020. With thanks to everyone for their condolence messages, they are appreciated.

This journey continues to be a roller coaster ride as the grieving process manifests itself. One common thread in all of the advice given is that staying busy is a good means of helping work through all of this. So hopefully the research and updates to the website will continue and assist with the healing process.

Thanks to everyone who continues to provide information, images and corrections for use in the website - Thank You!!
