Ann I am so sorry to hear of your Dad's passing. He was such a sweetheart. I enjoyed the time that I came to the house and helped your Mom. She was a doll also. Love and prayers.

I am sending condolences on behalf of my Mother. She and my Daddy thought so highly of John and Louise and all the family. John was one of the best. Mother is not able to write or do these type of things. She loved her neighbors and I send our love to you all.
