    Rune, 

    I was speaking to Fenger classmate Micki DiNardi Modolo yesterday who mentioned she saw your dad had recently passed away..

    how lucky you were to have your dad all these years.

    I remember you dad fondly as he'd pop into see your mom while we were working in the operating room at Roseland  hospital. They were a very cool couple and they loved each other wholeheartedly .

    My deepest sympathy to you and your family.

    Big hug, Gail Sosnoski Willich
