Sorry to read of Henry's passing. I worked with him at the GRPO years ago/
Sister Carol Krugler - I knew you when we lived at Woodland Estates - I can help Anna file for Henry's federal benefits, if necessary at my phone # 635-2678.
I would also like to talk with you about whether he ever retired from the Post Office.
Bob Park, Postal Retiree
