Judy, Please know that I am thinking about you and send you my deepest sympathy. I always had a genuine respect for your Dad, he was indeed one of a kind. Today I am remembering when your Dad, your Mom, and you stayed with us on the farm. You were very young, and such a sweetheart. Your Dad was very proud of you. Hang on to the happy memories and know that time will put all things in perspective. With caring kindness, love, and sympathy, Mary
