Dear GB and all the family: My deepest sympathies to a wonderful family. The things we did with mom and dad trying to watch over us was a great part of my youth. Later in life I used to run into them at the cancer center and we would commersate about the foibles of our high school years. I will miss them dearly and will pray for them. My health problems prevent me from being there. All of you will be in my thoughts.
