So sorry for your loss everyone. Your parents were the best people and I know my family missed them a lot when they retired and closed the coney . My father, Ted Jacobs of the Marathon service station on Court and Beecher, thought very highly of Judy and Ralph. They always had time to talk when we ordered takeout. The last time we saw them was at my Father's funeral in 2005. Hugs to you all and prayers for comfort at this time.
