    I am deeply sorry for the loss of your loved one and some I considered to be a dear freind. I worked with Muriel and Rae Buc for many years and we kept intouch after I left Mass Maritime. We would call each other every couple of months to catch up. I meant to call and wish her a happy Easter and I called today and just heard the sad news. She was a wonderful person and I will miss our chats. My love and comfort to you.
