    I am sorry for the Gorman family on the loss of their mother/grandmother –Mrs. Gorman. I was lucky to have known her since 1956. Most recently My wife and I had the good fortune to visit with her at our 50th class reunion of St . Catherine of Siena grade school reunion. Rest In Peace— Matt Hayes
