Our neighbor, Michael Gaye, passed away while on a cruise in the Greek Islands a few days ago.  He became ill while swimming and there was no medical assistance available.

Once his body is brought back back to the United States, funeral arrangements will be made.  Thanks to Josclynne Grier for the photo montage below by Dedra Tate.  

Finally, Roberta Fisch passed away after a very long struggle with cancer. During those many years, she worked as much as she could and kept up a positive attitude.  Condolences go to her family and to her goddaughter Dorienne.
