An Awful Father's Day

Our condolences to the Forkey family of Boca Raton, which was planning to have a belated Father's Day celebration this week. Kenneth Forkey was the passenger in a cab that crashed into an idling semitruck on the way to La Guardia International Airport. Forkey, 25, who lived in Manhattan and was catching a flight to Fort Lauderdale to see his father, was killed in the accident.
