Joyce & Perry,
We are so saddened to learn of this.
Please know you are in our thoughts and prayers.
I can see Kermit working in the garden at Miss Mary's....shirt unbuttoned, Sperrys, pipe in hand. It was such a treat to get to beach and have fresh tomatoes waiting on the table downstairs. And ALWAYS had time to talk fishing with Sam and the boys.
Much Love,
Sam & Mary Jo
