    Sadly, my father just lost his fight against a horrific disease this evening. He was certified to scuba dive in the early 1970's, and as his eldest child, encouraged me to become a diver at the tender age of 14, just in time for the Boston Sea Roamers annual summer dive trip.

    As a diver, he loved underwater photography and became active in civil defense and other life saving activities.

    He will be missed. Thanks to all of you for your concern and prayers throughout his illness.
