SHIPMATE PASSING: I received the following mail:

Dear Gentlemen:

It is with considerable regret that I inform you that David Nightingale passed on last August 2006. I know he was happy to be a part of your alumni group and truly enjoyed the news and activity of the website.

I didn't know how to reach you at the time, but the recent mailing (snail mail) gave me the information I needed to be in touch.

Warmest regards to all you who have so ably served our nation.

Sincerely, Mrs. David Nightingale

Shipmate Nightingale was a SK3 and served aboard the Altair 1962-1964. Mrs. Nightingale can be reached at 3 Chaucer St., Sandwich, MA 02563
