My condolences to you and your family Fritz . I have many good memories of him being both Treasurer of the WMRHS and a "reporter" for your dad editing the Waybill". I'd type up the latest sightings around town on the computer, save it to a floppy, bring it to your dad at the studio, BS a bit and take a floppy home for the next month. All before email, smart phones, message boards and the like.
