Hi Brother:

Some bad news Al Donchin died on  Jan 13, 1998 . E230 was informed by
his friend a week after his death.  There was no funeral , no wake etc. 
I spoke to Chief Ganci and sent his some info on Al and requested a 65-2
or sometime on the Dept. Order.  Still waiting.  Al had a bad auto
accident in Dec and was in the hosp. recovering, when suffered a heart
attach.  Again E230 never got this word until after his death.  Capt Ed Regan E-230
