I'm glad that at least one Comet lived to see the group's induction. Haley would have wanted them inducted with him (especially Rudy) back in 1987.

RIP Franny, and thank you.

There were a couple of others at the ceremony.

I know, that's why I said at least one. Beecher's the one I remember the most vividly being there.
