I was married in 2015 to my wife Frances; subsequently, my mother passed away in 2016.  Two days after her passing, I received a call that my wife had chrondrosarcoma in her left leg and pelvic region. A slow growing but agressive type of cancer; she survived but we are always vigilant regarding its return.  All of this was compounded by a revocable trust family lawsuit and completing my Ph.D in 2019 at the University of Arizona with credits transferred from Columbia University, New York, New York.


Many thanks to MD Anderson Cancer Center, Houston, Texas; my sister Cynthia Ann Gabrielson Lurix, Sealy, Texas and W. Robinson Frazier, ESQ, Jacksonville, Florida.

Below:  This is my first QSL card when my call sign was WA2MKD in 1973; I was 20 years of age.  I found the photo on eBay. I lived in Summit, New Jersey but operated a portable station in Mantoloking, New Jersey.  My good friend and the person who mentored me in amateur radio, George P. Slockbower, W2PHB lived across the street from me in Mantoloking. George passed away in 1989 but his interest in amateur radio and legacy live on through me.  Thank you George, you will always be remembered.
