With announcement of Mr. Lancia's psssing at Tobyhanna Army Depot, I read his obituary. Although I never knew him or his family, he sounds like a man I would have been proud to call a friend. I feel for his family and offer my sincere condolences for them. May God hold him in the palm of His hand.
Respectfully,
