Dear Susan, Linda and Mike, All my condolences on the loss of your Dad. He and your Mom were great friends to the Mildreds. I particularly remember their kindness towards us after losing Mom. I was so happy to visit with Don often this past year at Westminster. He seemed very happy there. I will always remember his smiling face and love of life. I smile knowing our parents are happily reunited in peace. Thinking of you all, Ann and family
