In Memoriam: Two of our staunchest allies have passed away this month. Bill O’Brien and Donna Finn. Both stood for all that is good and decent in this world. They put their bodies were their beliefs were. They told the truth about who was winning and who was losing out and why.
Thank God we had them with us for a while. We are all better for their presence.
