To Frankie M and the Cieplinski family, I am so sorry to hear of Frank´s passing, which I just learned about today. I shared so many activities with Frank at Perkin-Elmer and many lunches together after retirement. He was first class and I was proud to have known him and worked with him. God bless his soul.
