Dan, Elmer, and John,

I just learned of your mother’s passing. She was a special lady and I’m sure will be missed by all of you. When we were kids, she always made me feel like one of your family. A few years ago when I was back in Wheeling, I paid her a visit and enjoyed catching up on old times.

My condolences to you and your families.
