    Joan, So sorry to hear about Chuck’s passing. He was a ‘one-of-a-kind’ fellow who I enjoyed working with very much during my 32 years with Morse Controls. We traded many ‘barbs’ over the years, but it was always in good fun. May he rest in peace.
    Joan: I’m keeping you in my thoughts and prayers.
