      I'll check to be sure I have those three. (I remember Frist, for obvious reasons.) It's possible that, if they were posted several days later, I missed them.

      There have been a few times -- such as with the suicides -- where they haven't included them at first and then did. I wonder if that might not have happened with those who died out of country.

      Anyway, I appreciate your pointing those out.

      I had all three of those. So that might mean that the descriptions I read were not complete.

      Anyway, one more thanks.
