Memorial Remembrance for GPWA Members
On Monday, we celebrated Memorial Day in the U.S., a holiday that honors those who died in active military service. For many of us in the states it is also a day when we remember those we knew who are no longer with us. For the third straight year, we would like to recognize GPWA members that have passed away. Please see inside this thread for the list and let us know if you are aware of anyone who has been left out and we will add their names.
