So sorry to hear about the loss of your husband. You are in my thoughts and prayers as you travel this road that I have been on. Time does heal, but you have to be patient.

Dear Brian, Park City was nearly 40 years ago - but you and Pat made the trip so much more fun & lively for all 24 of us - crazy drive in Pat's VW Squareback from Sac. To Park City! A great time of our Southern Cal. gang experiencing some good ole No. Cal boy spirit! Rest well. :)
My thoughts & prayers to Dody & your family,
Jackie (Pitts) Euer

Warm Summer Sun

Warm summer sun,
Shine kindly here,
Warm southern wind,
Blow softly here.
Green sod above,
Lie light, lie light.
Good night, dear heart,
Good night, good night.

By Mark Twain (Samuel Langhorne Clemens)

To Dody and family:
May Friends comfort you,
Faith uphold you,
Loving memories heal your heart,

My thoughts and prayers are with you.
