Our dear friend, Frank R. Hunter, died on March 4, which by coincidence, was Academy Awards Day. If anyone deserved a Lifetime Achievement Award, it's Frank Hunter. Perhaps his seminal achievement was a lifetime vocabulary that was 100% free of profanity. A sportswriter friend of Grantland Rice once said, "If there be treachery in a man, golf will out it". If profanity is treachery lite, most of us hackers have been outed no later than the 5th or 6th hole. Frank's crudest response to a terrible shot? ... "Oh, phooey!" ....... A verse from Ecclesiastes proclaims, "Never judge a man until he is in his grave, for his true epithet will be written by his children". Ah yes, Holly and Aaron. We'll start with Holly, who spent 3 days at our home, doing what any garden variety supermom would do to make her older son's IU graduation as memorable as possible. Such pleasant memories for us as well. Aaron's a deputy sheriff in Vanderburgh County. With his gene pool, he'd be a marvelous Officer/Sheriff Absolutely Friendly. ....... As for me, in honor of Frank, I'm giving up cursing for Lent. ~ ~ Condolences to Carol and her wonderful family.

Dick was bestman when Bill and I married in 1952. They are remembering their old SIGECO pals now I'm sure. Fondly, Patti Clem
