Seems there has been a lot of bad news this past month. We are losing so many of our dear vets. It is with great sadness that I tell you of the passing of Donato "Danny" Marini. Danny was a very dear friend of John McAuliffe. If you would like to read more about Danny and remember him the way he was, please visit John's page:
