    Jerry, I am so sorry to hear about your brother, what a shock. I forwarded the announcement on to the OLD TIMERS of TK. I can’t make it to the wake tonight, and I have to work tomorrow, so I’ll have to see you later. Good luck in this trying time. Try to have a Good Christmas. Please give my regards to the extended family.
