My Sincerest condolences to the Curran family. I used to enjoy the Refreshers and EMT classes Charlie and Big AL Frew put on at the Holbrook Fire Dept. to help us keep up with our EMT Training and requirements. Charlie and Mary were nice enough to come hear the band I was in years ago in the 70's at the Ranchhouse in Marshfield. That was very nice of them and I do not think we hurt their ears too bad. God Bless.
regards,
