Tom - So sorry to see of your loss in the newspaper today. I recall when Tim T. and his wife had us "Quest folks" over to his house and Pat sang a lovely song. I have many fond memories of those days working for you. Sorry I can't attend the services - we will be in Florida then. I wish you all the best. Jack
