Frank and Shirley were my snowbird neighbors in Phoenix. They were the best neighbors one could ask for. I won´t soon forget them. RIP

I spent time with Dr. Fitch when my wife was involved with the U of C Cancer Research Foundation. A lovely and most interesting man. A privilege to have been able to know him.
