Just received this from Bob Sammon by postal mail

DEAR TED:
FIRST OF ALL .. .CONGRATULATIONS TO YOU AND ALL WHO WORK TO KEEP THE
RETIREES GROUP TOGETHER AND INFORMED ABOUT ITS MEMBERS..

THEN, I THANK YOU FOR KEEPING ME ON YOUR MAILING LIST.
I'VE BEEN AWAY FROM CBS ABOUT 40 YEARS BUT THE
MEMORIES ARE STILL STRONG. PARTICULARLY WHEN I SEE FAMILIAR
NAMES IN THE "IN MEMORIUM" BOX.. .THIS TIME, JOHN MCMANUS AND MIKE SALGO.
WHAT GREAT FELLOW WORKERS THEY WERE BACK THEN, I OFTEN WONDER HOW
MANY OF MY TV GENERATION (DEFINED AS THE DAYS IN THE GRAND CENTRAL
STUDIOS) OR THE RADIO DAYS (FROM 1934 TO 1946) ARE STILL THERE.
TIME MARCHES ON!!!

ALTHOUGH I'M HOLDING MY OWN (AT 87) I'M NOT YET UP TO GETTING TO ONE OF YOUR LUNCHEONS. PEHAPS ONE DAY!.
I'D BE GRATEFUL IF YOU'D ACCEPT THE ENCLOSED CHECK TOWARD WHATEVER
EXPENSES YOU HAVE FOR THE GROUP.


BEST WISHES ALWAYS,
BOB SAMMON

PS I WOULD LOVE TO HEAR FROM SOME OF MY OLD CBS FRIENDS.
