2012-01-04 11:35:59To all of you,
Vicki and I were both very saddened to get the news. I wish I could make it down, but just can't. I will never forget the advice Sarah gave me after Dad died, that a dark cloud would hang over my head for several months and then it would suddenly lift. That was helpful not only when Dad died,but with Mother's death as well. I have shared this with others and they have found it beneficial also. Thanks for helping myself and others through some difficult times. Time and distance has a way of separating all of us, but I have a lot of fond memories of your family growing up. Both of us send our love and condolences. You are in our thoughts and prayers.
