I am very sorry to say that Frank Wheelihan passed away peacefully Friday afternoon after having an extreme stroke last Tuesday. I know you all join me in sending a big hug to Noreen and family. Frank was a long time member of OCHA who truly enjoyed the wonderful sport of cutting. When physical issues prevented him from showing any longer, Frank still came to the shows to support Noreen and visit with everyone. I am so grateful that Frank was able to attend the recent OCHA Annual Banquet and Awards held in January and that once again, he was able to exchange some great stories with his cutting friends!

Noreen is planning to have a celebration of Frank's life later this spring. Details will be made available as soon as we have them.

Cherish every day,

Kathy
