Dear Doug, Marylynn and their extended family,
I am so sorry to hear of your mother’s passing. I look back on the many hour of fun we had at your house growing up in West Ridge. Your mother was always so gracious and happy to have us kids around. Know that Bill and I will be thinking of you all Saturday morning and look forward to seeing you at Christmas.
