Back in the day the Dixon family was an everyday part of our family. Linda was a den leader in Scouting and the boys had a lot in common with our two sons. A lot of years have gone by since then, but we are saddened by the passing of Michael.
Noel and I want to extend our deepest sympathy to your family at this time.
