Notes by Georgiana Knapp, Class of '66:

I spoke with Ruth Moore after she contacted me to send this news of her husband's, Paul Moore's, passing. Paul suffered from COPD and in November was treated at a hospital and released to a nursing home after being cleared of Covid. Two days later he was sent back to the hospital with Covid. Ruth believes that he got Covid at the nursing home. Paul and Ruth resided in Huntington Woods, Michigan.
