Re: Urban Drew

Sad to read that Urban Drew has died. I'm sure that Bill Kemp, Len Woods and others in our bunch, if they're still around, are saddened too.
Drew was one of the smartest and best of us in the 375th.

Re: Urban Drew

for those who may not know, bill kemp passed away in 1966, fifty years ago this year. like the kennedy assassination or 9/11, i remember exactly where i was and what i was doing when we got the phone call. he told my grandfather that he would never die in an airplane accident and, by god, he was right. he was killed in a one-car crash, driving a volkswagen, of all things! there's some sad, karma-laden circularity to that.
