“I wish to offer condolences to the family of K.L. I knew him when he worked for the same architectural firm as I several years ago (Voorhees Design Group). K.L. was a soft spoken individual who would always listen to a story I may have to tell. It is always interesting as to how timing works. I was curious a few weeks ago about where he might be..... a better place.”
