in memoriam: Frank D'Amore

In the archives of the Friends of Kah Tai is a letter signed by Frank D'Amore and Peggy Albers. In November 1982 they wrote an open letter to all 'Friends of Kah Tai Lagoon' to raise funds for the legal bills associated with "the protective lawsuits which prevented short-sighted destruction of the area...filed on behalf of all of us who appreciate Kah Tai Lagoon and share the values which the Lagoon Park represents...".

We have all lost a friend, even those of us who never got to know Frank D'Amore.  Our community has lost one of our longtime visionaries, who made a difference from the scale of the Marine Science Center right down to our daily bread. Heartfelt sympathy to his family and friends.
