A Special Thanks to the FAC

"Barbara,  Thank you so much for arranging the delivery of the bed.  Tim Dillon and Jim Kravetz delivered it today. They did a great job of setting it up and greater for me to have a couple of young retirees to talk over my old times with.  I talk to some of my old classmates from time to time but it is especially good to talk to ones that came well after me.  I am 84 years old and retired in 1982 with 23 years of service.  Would like to talk at any time to any old retirees.  My number is 281 356 2330.

Thank you again for your consideration.

Bob J. Foster"
