In Memory of Michèle Moriarity
Many of our readers have worked with Tom Forhan at Port Tobacco, and a few of the PTAP team has worked with his son Colin. Last month, after an illness of many months, Tom's wife Michèle died. I never met her, but with a husband like Tom and a son like Colin I don't doubt that she was a very special person. On behalf of the staff and volunteers of the Port Tobacco Archaeological Project, I offer our condolences.
