    Mr. Limerick was a good mentor for me to understand the Work Order System, while I was working in the Colonial Williamsburg General Accounting Office. I learned about his passing away just today on December 24, 2020. I wish him my best good will, after his long meaningful life for all people around him. (I could not know, as I am living in France since 30 years.)
