Other Comments:
I've been looking for shipmates from all the ships I've served on. Especially been trying to find RM1(SW) Richard Brown from the Capodanno. If anyone knows anything about Dick please let me know. Thanks

This is to let shipmates and their wives know that my wife of 45 years, Alice Grace Hooper, passed away on May 12, 2014. She knew a lot of people from the ships and stations I served and she always loved talking to people at all our gatherings. She was special to me and everyone she met.
She was having her second treatment of "multiple myeloma" and they couldn't get her blood pressure up, even after multiple transfusions. She was admitted to the hospital on Thursday evening and Monday she was gone. My wife, will be truely missed by her family and many friends down through the years.
