Publisher's note: during the time Sally Porter worked at the Tribune Press during its years on Clinton Street and later on Trinity Ave. Mohan did many favors for the owners and staff of thehometown weekly.  In his very talented way he often crafted cupboards or shelves- whatever we seemed to need at the time to make our jobs a little easier.  He was great with his hands. Never would he take money for his help.  We enjoyed our conversations with him over the years and always found him to be pleasant and kind.  He cared deeply about his family and we were honored to know him.  Our condolences to Sally and her family at this time of their profound loss.
