Dear Janice--Karen told me your father passed away and i want to send my sympathy. While many of our parents lived long, full lives, others were taken earlier than what we desired. Regardless of the age and cause of death, it's hard to lose parents and such a reminder that life keeps marching on and we are taking the place of our parents. We recently lost Kent's mom at age 92 in July; his dad has been gone 8 years. My mother has been gone almost four years and we celebrated my Dad's 91st in August. i think it's hard for him to see his siblings/spouses passing also. As you know, my uncle Virg Massner passed away (his wife is my Dad's sister) shortly after your dad. I hope to make it to his visitation on Friday but unfortunately won't be staying over for the funeral. may God bless you with precious memories. Love you, Beth

My heart and prayers go out to you all ( especially Janice ) in your time of loss. My desire is to be with you at the services, but I'm out East meeting a new granddaughter. Just wanted you to know I care and feel for your loss.
Class of '75, Jim Pilling
