Not sure what to say?

I knew Nick Catron back in the very early 70's. Groton, Connecticut. He was in the Navy. He wore black turtle-neck cashmere sweaters, and pale yellow wind breakers, British Sterling cologne, and drove some flash white sports car. He shared an apartment with several other sailors, one of which was my boyfriend. They watched football and I baked cookies. Good memories of that time. Today I just happened to think of Nick, and in old internet fashion did a 'where are they now' search......

Gail, so sorry to hear about Nick.

Gail - I'm so sorry to hear of your husband's passing. Please know you are in my thoughts and prayers. (Pam Satterfield/Unum Group)

It was enjoyable to work with Nick during the late 80's and early 90's. Jim Robinson
