It is with profound sadness that I must inform the Chapter of the passing of another one of our members. Brother Frank Lema was struck by a vehicle yesterday afternoon while he was standing in the parking lot at his work. Last night at 10pm at RI Hospital, with his family by his side, Frank passed onto Heaven 1. At this time, due to the fact that the accident occurred on Military property, NCIS is in charge of the investigation and all that can be said is that the operator of the vehicle has been taken into custody pending charges.
I want to thank Dana for his prompt response to the Hospital after we were informed of the accident as well as for Alan responding also. Myself, Jack, Rocky and Dave were there with the family at the end. It was only a little over 3 months ago that Frank's wife Janice passed after their accident. The only solace we can take is that Frank and Janice are reunited and together again for all eternity.
I will keep the membership updated as to any arrangements.
My Brother Frank now you will have your loving wife's arms around you again to ride on in Heaven 1 for all eternity.
