Louie, Charlie and Fred and all your families,: my deepest sympathy to you all. Julie worked for me at MEA for many years and she was the very best assistant I had. She was a remarkable lady.! She often talked about you all and was very proud of you. The last time I saw her was last year at the Veterans Home and she still had that wonderful smile of hers. My best to you all.

Charlie Fontaine Posted at 10:02pm

Thank you, Pam. She always spoke fondly of you and enjoyed working for you.
