Jerry Ludemann                                                                                 !!! New !!!
*****
It is with much sadness that the Society announces the death of Jerry Ludemann on 6th August 2017 at his home in Oakdale, Minnesota, USA . Many members will have met Jerry when he accompanied his wife and former NA Branch Convenor, Cathy, to Clan events on both sides of the Atlantic. To quote Cathy, "the members that he met enjoyed his sense of humor and sharing a wee dram!"
*****
We hope to publish a full obituary in the 2017 edition of the Clan magazine and on behalf of all Clan members send sincere condolences to Cathy and all her family.
