Lance Gay died last night - his health had been bad for a few weeks. He was taken to the hospital yesterday because he was having trouble breathing-his COPD had gotten worse. No word yet on services. I'm at work and don't have access to anyone else's email (I am guessing Joan's). If you do, can you forward the news. If not, I'll do it when I get home.No word yet on services. -Jody
