Bruce, Nancy and Laura;
I’m so sad to hear about the passing of Mrs. Hunt. She was a beautiful lady and she will be greatly missed. I’m ashamed I didn’t know until I read it in the paper and I couldn’t find a telephone number to call you personally. I’d very much like to do something in her memory. If there is a Memorial or a preferred donation venue please let me know. In love and sympathy, Doris Mathis.
