Hi, I just wanted to let you know that a good friend of mine passed away this morning, Gayle Helterbrand. 

He spent his life playing and reading about checkers, and traveled to all the tournaments he could.

He is from Cabool, Missouri and the funeral will be there Tuesday. I thought you might be able to pass this information on to all his friends, thank you, Terry
