      I'm sorry to learn of Angie's passing.  She and I went through D.A.Harman school through Hazleton High School together.  I last saw her at our class reunion and we always had a good conversation.  I often thought of her through the years.  She was always a very caring lady.  My sympathy to you, her family.
      Sincerely,......Joan Arthur Horn.......class of 1955
