Dear Friends:
Sitting here in Georgia, the local tragedies of our town feel especially 
painful. Wish we could be there to share our grief in any service 
I had known late Sue somewhat, but our kids had her as a teacher--our 
sons remember her fondly.
And I had known late David Trail almost as long as Tom Trail; his sons 
were in my classes years ago.  My heart goes out in grief for the Trail 
families.  I was somewhat acquainted with Kane Grzebieski from the 
Unitarian.  And Michael Chin--hope he fully recovers--was often in our 
home, as he was friends with our younger son during their Moscow-High days.
Hopefully, what happened in Moscow remains a rare event--but that sort 
of news is almost routine in Atlanta, as in any major city.
With our deepest condolences for the bereaved.
