To: David Knisely Dear Dave, I would like to express my deepest sympathy in the passing of your mother. I know your sorrow. I just lost my father this past February. In reading the obituary for your mother I was shocked to learn of the passing of your brothers Paul and Dan. I did not know they had passed away. I am so so sorry. I hope I am not being too bold in asking what happened to your brothers. Especially Paul. As you know Norman (Edie) and I knew Paul and were quite fond of him. If you could find a few minutes to e-mail me in the near future, I would appreciate it very much. I was going to attend the memorial for your mother so that I could see you and speak to you, but my mother is having an auction that day to sell the farm where I grew up and mom and dad lived for over 50 years. It is going to be a rough day seeing all the farm equipment and our home place sold. I grew up there and it is a very special place to me and all of our family. I hope you remember who I am. I am remarried and have the name of Immel now. My name was Susan Dennis Edie. We worked together for the City of New Philadelphia for a few years. Those times and memories are very special to me. I miss those days. Again my deepest sympathy to you and your family.

David, I was shocked when I heard the news about your mother. I was one of the Home Health Aides that took care of your mother. She was such an inspiration to me. I am grateful that a couple of times I was able to meet you and your brother Paul (before his death). My sympathy goes out to you and your family. It's hard when you lose a love one. I lost my brother (he was 49 years old) last August. May God be with you during this time of need.
