Dear Mary Ann, Please know you and your dad are in our thoughts and prayers. We so enjoyed seeing and speaking with both of your lovely parents at church. Although we are not in Buffalo as much as we would like, we will surely miss Richard's company when back for a visit in our old pew. With our deepest sympathy.

Thinking of you and sending all of our love. I always had fun spending time with Uncle Dick and Aunt Lilian, and watching them with Gramma & Grampa (Ceil and Blackie), especially at Kunegunda events.
