    Kim, Ray and Don:

    Please accept my sympathy and that of my family on the death of your dad.  Going way back, I think of him and your mom at our family reunions and later, he and Chuck having such fun at the golf club.  They both enjoyed working with the young caddies and we enjoyed being at the award dinner at the end of each season.  Our two guys were so proud of the young people who received the college scholarships.  Good memories.

    And thanks to you, Kim, for keeping us up to date during your visits with him....and bringing the goodies he obviously looked forward to.
