Bill & Bev, I am so sorry to hear about the death of your mother. I certainly know what it’s like to lose a parent. I’m still not over it. All I can say is that time allows you to appreciate the good memories. Please feel free to contact me way out here in California!

Dear Bill, Pam and family, so sorry to hear of your loss. When I read about your mother and all her accomplishments I realize you have been extremely blessed and will have wonderful memories. I work away so much that I never see much of my neighbors anymore, but just wanted you to know that I am thinking of you at this time.
