Passing along a couple clippings...

Dear Friends of Valerie,

This past Sunday Valerie's husband Bob Goff passed away.
There will be a memorial service on Jan 11 at 11:30 AM at UMC's Duvall
room.  His weakened heart gave out.  While flowers are OK she is also
working up a plan for donations to a heart fund or for an education fund
at the Optical Sciences Center or SPIE.  I will keep you informed.
