My deepest sympathies in the loss of Mr. Gore. I worked for him at the Cleveland Public Schools in the Board of Education Department. He was one of my first bosses' after graduating in the mid 70s. He taught me, while typing his reports, about the Fortran and Cobalt languages for computers. You and your family are in my prayers at this time. A donation has been sent in his name to the Elizabeth City State University Foundation. Carol Stark
