Dear Terri and Connie,

Please know our thoughts and prayers are with you in the loss of your dear Father. We have so many fond memories of him. We’re so sorry that we’re unable to be there with you. We are staying with Teresa this winter, and she lives just outside of Philadelphia. As much as we’d like to make the trip, we just can’t. It would be too hard on Don. But please know we are with you in spirit and love you.

Martha and Don
