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.
