    Condolences on the loss of your father. He and I both belonged to
    Cleveland Council Knights of Columbus, No. 733, now in its 112th
    year. At one time we had many police officers, judges, even the
    governor (Voinovich) and had over one thousand members.
    I would from time to time call your father after he returned from
    Florida. Again my condolences on his passing.

    Leo Mc Intyre P G K
    49 year member of our council.
