'Overdue tribute' article truly overdue



Your article on the front page of the Nov. 23 Your Life section, "Overdue tribute," tells of Frances "Frenchie" Plenert, Bronze Star recipient during World War II.

I would like to tell you about my prolonged association with Ms. Plenert before these stories ever surfaced.

For more than 10 years, Fran has been a dedicated volunteer for the original Research Center on Aging and its recent re-organization, providing instructions for senior programs benefiting hundreds of people - with humble servitude.

I am so proud to have experienced her gracious friendship for all these years, never realizing her well-kept secret. My thanks to Fran for all she does for the least of us.
