Karen, although I did not know Paul Kretsch personally, I have seen his name
on the charter. If you collect signatures for a condolence, please be sure
to include my name! Since Jerry Gulden contacted me personally, I sent a
condolence to him personally, as he has lost a very close friend whom he
knew for half a century.
