Don, Bill, and family,

Yous mom, grandmother, and great grandmother was one of the kindest people I ever met. When Don and I stayed in your Union City home for a month in 1972 before we were "settled" into real-life we could do no wrong in her eyes. I always enjoyed our conversations and learned a lot about life is full of cheer from her. All my best during what I know will be a difficult transition. Mark
